Sir Bobby Robson believes Sam Allardyce´s departure as Newcastle manager shows the pressure on top-flight bosses is now "too much".

Robson knows all too well the pitfalls of managing United after his transformation of a relegation-threatened club into Champions League qualifiers was rewarded with the sack by the previous regime in 2004 - and the former England coach claims the demands placed on managers these days are rapidly becoming intolerable.

"That´s the eighth Premiership manager we´ve lost this season already. The pressure is too much now in the Premiership," he told BBC Radio Five Live.
