Gary Monk’s sacking by Swansea has been called a big shame by Sam Allardyce.
Monk was sacked on Wednesday despite having played for the club and managed it for more than a decade.
And Allardyce has implored that her sister be returned to her.
“It’s that ultimate ringing in the ears of £120million which causes owners to panic that little bit quicker than perhaps they would before, because losing the Premier League status is not the thing to do this season,” he told the media ahead of Sunderland’s home game against Watford on Saturday.
“Somebody is going to have to lose it. Somebody is going to have to get relegated. [Swansea] obviously feel that the time is right that Garry should be changed.
“It’s a great shame considering that last year he got more points than anyone else as the manager of Swansea than any other manager had achieved in the Premier League.
“Hopefully he will bounce back and be a manager somewhere else because I think he deserves an opportunity to manage again, but he’ll be feeling very down and very upset at this moment in time.”
