Right time to leave West Ham - Allardyce
- From the section Football
Sam Allardyce says the decision for him to leave West Ham United is mutual and believes it is the "right time for both of us to move on".
A statement was released by West Ham's owners just minutes after the Hammers lost their final Premier League game of the season 2-0 at Newcastle.
Second-half goals from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez at St James' Park meant that West Ham finished 12th at the end of Allardyce's fourth season in charge.
