Allardyce plays down Real/Inter comments

Allardyce plays down Real/Inter comments

Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has played down his frankly hilarious Inter/Real Madrid comments of last week by insisting it was all said light heartedly.

Sam even goes as far to say he is happy at Blackburn but admits he is an ambitious little fella looking to improve.

I didn't think it would create quite as big a stir as it has done,' Allardyce said to Sky Sports.

'It was a tongue-in-cheek comment. Somebody asked me if I had found my level and was comfortable as manager at Blackburn Rovers.

'I'm never comfortable as a manager because I am always looking to improve, and my terms of wanting to improve is about having a burning ambition to always get better than I am.

'Obviously, in the end, that would always be to try and get to the very, very top of the industry that I am working in.'

'I believe in my own ability, that is the bottom line. At the moment it is with Blackburn Rovers, which I am very pleased about.'
