West Ham captain Nolan shocked by Allardyce rumours

West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan has admitted that he and his teammates were shocked by speculation that the club were planning to remove manager Sam Allardyce this summer, writes Sky Sports.

The Hammers travel to Manchester City on Sunday in a game which, if some rumours are to be believed, could be Allardyce’s final game in charge, during which he has re-established their place in the Premier League.


Having initially taken charge upon the club’s relegation to the Championship in 2011, Allardyce guided West Ham back to the top-flight at the first attempt, and led them to a 10th place finish last season. This time around, things have been more difficult due to a plethora of injuries, but another mid-table finish has already been achieved.


Despite the success, criticism of Allardyce’s style of football have led some supporters to become disillusioned, leading to the rumours that he and the club could part company. Nolan, however, was stunned by the talk. He said: "It shocked a lot of the boys. We found it all quite surprising to be honest and we are still quite shocked that people can write that stuff.


"If you ask anyone in that dressing room, the gaffer has got the full backing of every one of us. It's a sad occasion when we are talking about him getting sacked after the magnificent job he has done over the last three seasons and I've been a part of that with him.


"I've seen the difference he's made from when he first walked in - the state of the club from then to what it is now - I'm sure the owners would recognise the magnificent job he's done.’
