Sam Allardyce says he is ‘deeply disappointed’ to lose his position as England manager after just 67 days at the helm.

Allardyce was targeted in a Daily Telegraph investigation into alleged corruption in English football, and the departure of the 61-year-old was confirmed following crisis talks involving FA chairman Greg Clarke and chief executive Martin Glenn.

Former Bolton and West Ham manager Allardyce said: “Further to recent events, The FA and I have mutually agreed to part company.

“It was a great honour for me to be appointed back in July and I am deeply disappointed at this outcome.

“This afternoon (Tuesday), I met with Greg Clarke and Martin Glenn and offered a sincere and wholehearted apology for my actions.

“Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need The FA’s full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment.

“As part of today’s meeting, I was asked to clarify what I said and the context in which the conversations took place. I have co-operated fully in this regard.

“I also regret my comments with regard to other individuals.”

Plateau State Records 50 Cases Of Child r*pe In Just Four Months – 

The Plateau State government has revealed a shocking statistic that indicates that about 50 children of all sexes have been defiled in the state in the past four months alone, saying there has been a surge in the crime.

“Our records show 50 recent cases of r*pe in the state. This is just within the last four months or so”, said the Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs. Rufina Gurumyen.

Mrs. Gurumyen gave the figure on Tuesday while addressing journalists in Jos, the Plateau state capital, ahead of the launch of the state initiative to End Violence Against the Children (EndVAC), to come up this week.

“The last two cases are just days away; one in Jos involving a suspect who defiled a child of two years, and another in Langtang.

“In Langtang, the suspect defiled a disabled child. The first one was found to have defiled a child sometimes ago, but the family decided to conceal it.

So this particular one, a neighbour reported to the ministry for us to track him and the family to start the case”.

EndVAC is a national child protection campaign funded by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Plateau keyed into the campaign following President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive last year for states to initiate their own respective campaigns.
