Andy Carroll hails "great" Sam Allardyce

West Ham striker Andy Carroll praises manager Sam Allardyce for the faith that he has placed in him throughout the season.

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has praised manager Sam Allardyce for the faith that he has placed in him throughout the season.

The England striker played a pivotal role in helping United secure Premier League football for another season by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Upton Park this afternoon.

Although not on the scoresheet, Carroll proved a constant menace to the Spurs back four, and the 25-year-old hailed the "great" Allardyce for supporting him through times of injury trouble.

He told BBC Sport: "I've had a tough season getting fit and staying fit but I am feeling strong now.

"Sam Allardyce is a great manager. He has trusted me and played me when I've not been 100% fit.

"He has a lot of faith in me, I respect that and have to give it my all when I go out on to the pitch. His man-management of me has been great."

Harry Kane deflected a Carroll header into his own net for the opening goal before a Stewart Downing free kick doubled the advantage over 10-man Tottenham, who had defender Younes Kaboul sent off.

Carroll is among those expected to be considered by England manager Roy Hodgson for a place in his 23-man squad for the Three Lions' World Cup campaign in Brazil next month.
