039;My wife wanted me to pack in a long time ago'- Sam Allardyce explains reasons behind Crystal Palace departure

But the 62-year-old, who took charge of just one match during his stint as England boss, would consider a role at global level. "If another club say "Can you come and save us?', I don't think that's for me now", he told talk- SPORT radio on Wednesday". I have been there and done it. "If I have to consider anything, it would have to be an worldwide position", he told Talksport. The tension and the pressure is huge.

In an interview with talkSPORT, he said: "I understand it was my fault I went to these meetings, but I think that the decision done the day after was obviously something which shocked me". When you are on worldwide duty, it is all focused on you.

Allardyce then replaced Alan Pardew in December on a two-and-half-year deal, with Palace one point above the Premier League relegation zone. Time has to elapse and see how I feel, ' he added. I'm going to spend some time traveling the world.

And while the former Bolton, Blackburn and Newcastle boss has no appetite for another club job, he has not retired.

'I am going to miss being a manager and working with players, because it is a fantastic journey you have, as hard as it might be, the camaraderie and relationships you build with your staff and owners is very important'.

SAM ALLARDYCE looked heartbroken as he left Wembley Stadium after offering to resign as England boss. I was in a daze, I was staring into the abyss. "I am very grateful to Crystal Palace - hugely, hugely grateful - because Crystal Palace was one of the things I felt I had to do to overcome the depression and the disappointment that I had suffered in the short spell I'd had with England".
