>> Caught on camera, seemingly trying to cash in on his role as England football manager. Sam Allardyce making headlines after getting snared in a newspaper sting. Britain's Daily Telegraph alleging that he struck a 400,000 pound deal with undercover reporters posing as businessmen. The deal including advice on how to skirt rules on player transfers.

In 2008, the Football Association banned third parties from owning the economic rights of players. But Allardyce now appears to have said, those rules can be sidestepped. He also reportedly went on to make fun of predecessor Roy Hodgson. And said England's players were underperforming due to a psychological barrier.

The FA has asked the newspaper to provide more details, so that they can investigate the comments. Yet more claims muddying the reputation of the beautiful game.
