Ahead of his side’s Premier League meeting against West Ham United this weekend, Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood believes his counterpart Sam Allardyce will have plenty of interest should he leave the London club as expected at the end of the season, reports Sky
Allardyce has been tipped to leave West Ham this summer, with the former of the Londoners having seen their top-10 hopes in jeopardy. United haven’t won any away game in 2015, and have only picked up three wins from their last 18 played. Allardyce looked to have turned things around with the Hammers in the first-half of the season, as his side were full of goals and getting results, but now things have soured considerably, and supporters have made their feelings clear on the former Bolton, Blackburn and Newcastle boss.
But Tim Sherwood was full of praise for Sam Allardyce, and believes there will be many clubs interested in his services in the summer, saying: “It’s up to (the club’s hierarchy) to make that decision (on Allardyce‘s future) but there’ll be no shortage of takers for Sam Allardyce.” The Claret and Blues boss also noted what a difficult task it would be for Aston Villa to get a result against West Ham this weekend, which he put down to their manager’s philosophy in defensive resilience.
