West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has admitted that he phoned co-owner David Sullivan to discuss his future this week, as reported by London24.

Rumours were flying around that Allardyce was set to be sacked after the Hammers’ game at Manchester City this Sunday, where the East Enders are hoping to spoil the title party.

West Ham fans showed their displeasure at Allardyce in numerous games this season, but a win over rivals Spurs last week appeared to have lifted the gloom.

Big Sam has admitted that he wants assurances over his job although he had no indication from Sullivan that it was under threat.

“I heard the rumours yesterday,” Allardyce said.

“The only thing I can say is that I spoke to David Sullivan yesterday about arranging our usual end of season meeting to go through the pre-season, budgets and what’s going to happen next season.

“I had no indication to my position being under threat. That’s all I know, and he’s the boss. That’s really the bottom line, for me.

“I rang him up, spoke about what was going around, and under those circumstances we just talked about getting together and having out meeting next week.”
