The FA insist they remain happy with their handling of Sam Allardyce’s departure as England manager in September 2016 despite the 63-year-old winning a partial victory from the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).
Allardyce left the job after one game following an undercover investigation by The Daily Telegraph which alleged he told reporters posing as businessmen how to circumvent rules banning third-party ownership.
Allardyce lodged 25 complaints but IPSO found in favour of the newspaper on 22. The FA said: “We have not been involved with, and do not know, the details of the Independent Press Standards Organisation report. However, we can confirm that The FA’s position on Sam Allardyce has not changed.”
