Sam Allardyce has admitted that he has given up hope of becoming manager at one of the elite clubs in Europe.
In 2010, Allardyce claimed that he would be "more suited" to a club like Real Madrid or Inter Milan but has since changed his aspirations.
The West Ham United manager said: "I won't ever be going to a top-four club so I think we'll just leave it at that.
"I don't ever comment on that anymore because other people will jump on the back of it and cause all sorts of columns to go here, there and everywhere.
"I can understand what I can do, I understand my ability as a manager and I just do my job to the best of my ability wherever I work."
The Hammers host champions Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
