West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has given up any hope he may have had of one day managing one of the world's biggest clubs.
The 58-year-old was quoted in the past as saying he was good enough to manage Real Madrid or Inter Milan. But now he is clear on the fact he will not take over at any of Europe's elite clubs and will continue to do his best for the Hammers.
"I won't ever be going to a top-four club so I think we'll just leave it at that," he said. "I don't ever comment on that anymore because other people will jump on the back of it and cause all sorts of columns to go here, there and everywhere. I can understand what I can do, I understand my ability as a manager and I just do my job to the best of my ability wherever I work."
