Becoming England manager was supposed to be Sam Allardyce's dream job.

After over 25 years in club management, Allardyce thought he had reached the pinnacle of his career when he replaced Roy Hodgson after Euro 2016 in July.

But just after one game in charge, his reign could be over following a sting set up by The Telegraph where the England boss discussed ways to bend rules regarding transfers and reportedly agreed to a £400,000 deal with a football agency.

The FA are investigating the claims, however, many bookies have already slashed the odds of Allardyce getting the sack.

Obviously, it is quite a humiliating revelation for the 61-year-old but one particular old foe has still been able to see the funny side of the story.

You might remember Spanish defender Chico Flores, who played for Swansea between 2012-14, isn't one of Allardyce's biggest fans following a spat three years.

Allardyce was the manager of West Ham at the time and felt the centre-back had gone down too easily after connecting with Andy Carroll's swinging arm.

Flores got up to see the then Hammers boss laughing at him and reacted badly, as you can see below.

Nevertheless, the video of the incident went viral and it's clear the ex-Swansea defender still holds a bit of a grudge against the coach.

Flores, who now plays for Lekhwiya SC in Qatar, retweeted Marca's report of the sting on Allardyce and shortly followed it up with a tweet of his own, consisting of three laughing emojis.

And shortly after, he added this:

Allardyce now faces an anxious wait to learn his fate from the FA's investigation.

English football's governing body are under pressure to come to a quick conclusion, with the national team set to face Malta and Slovenia as part of their World Cup qualification campaign in just a few weeks' time.
