Jose Mourinho: I feel sorry for Sam Allardyce after his England sacking

Jose Mourinho has sent a message of sympathy to his friend Sam Allardyce after his sacking as England manager.

The Manchester United boss voiced his support for Allardyce after the 61-year-old was dismissed just 67 days into his role as the country’s national coach on Tuesday night.

He was secretly filmed by undercover reporters from the Daily Telegraph apparently discussing the possibility of earning extra cash and how to avoid adhering to Football Association rules on transfers.
