Sam Allardyce says that he would be interested in taking on the vacant Watford job following the sacking of Quique Sanchez Flores on Sunday.

Sam Allardyce has said that he would be interested in taking on the vacant Watford job following the sacking of Quique Sanchez Flores on Sunday.

The Hornets are looking for their ninth permanent appointment since 2013 and their second of the season after dismissing the Spaniard following their 2-1 defeat to Southampton, a result that leaves the club six points adrift at the bottom of the table.

Former Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton is currently the bookies' favourite to replace Flores, with Allardyce second with certain providers.

The former England manager intimated that he would be interested in the job, telling talkSPORT: "I'd have to talk to any club that was interested, to find out what they were looking for and what they want.

"If I was comfortable with that then I'll have a go again, get back amongst it and get the adrenaline going again.

"If I want to go to a club, it's whether I think I can help them get out of trouble and whether I can actually do it again because, as everybody knows, I've done it a few times.

"I don't want to go to a club and find that we're relegated at the end of the season, I don't want that, I'd want them to stay in the Premier League and then if I'm not the man to take them forward they've got the opportunity to find somebody who can."

Allardyce has not been involved in management since he left Everton in May 2018.
