Sam Allardyce could be banned from football

Martin Glenn said punishment could range from a huge fine or a ban for lifetime.

Glenn has made it clear that the FA are determined to carry on their strong stance against Allardyce

“The newspaper that made the revelations are releasing the full transcripts to the police, which is what has to happen.

 

“Once we get full access to them, we’ll pass them to our Integrity Unit. We’ve dealt with Sam as an employee. Sam’s role as a participant in the game will be part of this next process, if there is one.

“The decision will be based on the merits of the evidence. Bringing the game into disrepute might be a possible charge.

“A potential sanction could range from a fine to a ban. That’s what history shows. But that is for a tribunal to decide.”

Allardyce’s dream job came to an end after just 67 days as the London Telegraph released secretly-filmed footage of him making controversial remarks about a variety of subjects, including side work and circumventing Football Association regulations.
