Sam Allardyce: I'm just as good as Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta

Leeds United manager Sam Allardyce is a man who is a Premier League legend. He saved many teams from relegation, and he showed many times how great a coach he is. Although he is 68 years old, his motivation and desire are at their peak.

At one of the press conferences, Allardyce spoke about his coaching skills and compared himself to the best coaches in the Premier League. "I might be 68 and look old and antiquated but there's nobody ahead of me in football terms.

Not Pep, not Klopp, not Arteta. It's all there with me. They do what they do and I do what I do.
In terms of knowledge, I am not saying I'm better than them but I'm certainly as good as they are.
I just wish sometimes you can get the opportunity that you can show it, but that’s never going to happen for me now apart from keeping Leeds up”.

Allardyce emphasized that few expected his return. However, nothing could prevent him from showing his qualities again. Being the manager of Leeds United is a great thing.

If he really manages to save this team, he will once again confirm what has been said for years. "It was a shock because this time of the season and there are many managers who had changed hands, the most in the history of the Premier League, I thought it was all over for this season.
It was only a couple of minutes before I said yes.

Because of the situation, I had to rush through the process quickly so I could be here for at least a reasonable lead into Manchester City.
I've had a lot of response from many people saying congratulations. A few said I must be mad but I enjoy the game so much.
To try and save this club and keep it in the Premier League is a big responsibility but one I want to take because of who Leeds are."
