Leeds United have confirmed that head coach Sam Allardyce has left by mutual consent following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
The news of Allardyce’s departure was confirmed earlier today via the club’s official social media accounts.

Nicknamed ‘Big Sam’, the 67-year-old was only in charge for the club’s last four matches, for which he reportedly earned $625,000.
The ex-Newcastle and England manager missed out on a further $2.5m survival bonus as the Whites’ fate was finally sealed by a 4-1 defeat at Elland Road to Tottenham Hotspur on the final day of the season, meaning the Yorkshiremen finished the season second bottom of the league table.

The future of the club is in much doubt with USMNT trio Weston McKennie, Brenden Aaronson, and Tyler Adams all expected to leave the club this summer following a costly relegation from their third season in the Premier League, which will likely cost the Whites $100m in television money alone.
