Returning Sam to change ways

Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has vowed to improve his lifestyle after confirming that he is feeling well after undergoing heart surgery last week.

The 55-year-old former Bolton Wanderers manager had an angioplasty six days ago but was able to return home earlier this week.

Assistant boss Neil McDonald has been in charge of the first team for the last four games, the Premier League clashes against Bolton, Fulham and Stoke City, as well as Wednesday's Carling Cup quarter-final success over Chelsea.

Allardyce told Sky Sports News:"I feel good. Lots of people have contacted me. I've been overwhelmed with the amount of well-wishers.

"I'd like to thank them now, publicly, because it's been almost impossible for me to get back to every single person that's been a well-wisher.

"I'm fit and well now and I really appreciate their concern. At the moment I feel really good.

"I'll look after myself a bit more than I did before, keep my cholesterol down, keep going for regular testing and do more exercise if and when possible."
