David Sullivan has been in the firing line after Sam Allardyce appeared as a guest on Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast last Monday morning.
🎁 “You’d get the odd present from David Sullivan now and again.”
😳 “A player would just turn up at pre-season! Normally a striker.”
🤦♂️ “If they didn’t score it was down to your coaching!”

The 65-year-old addressed the boardroom issues at the club when asked about his time in east London, revealing that Sullivan would pick players without his consent, sign them, they’d then turn up at training and then he’d get the blame if things didn’t work out.
Allardyce humorously called these ‘little presents’ from Sullivan and understandably, some fans on Twitter have been taking aim at the 70-year-old over this latest revelation.
Wow😳 fair play to big Sam for actually saying this! Sullivan really is a joke.

Sullivan’s excellent track record speaks for itself, signed 40 strikers in the last 10 years and 32 of them have been outscored by Angelo Ogbonna…
