(GSM) – Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce claims he would win the title every year if he were manager of Real Madrid or Manchester United, insisting that he and Fulham counterpart Mark Hughes were not given enough time at big clubs.
Allardyce and Hughes go head-to-head on Saturday in a clash of two mid-table Premier League teams.
But Allardyce maintains the two managers are yet to reach their true potential in the game as he was dismissed before the half of the season when at Newcastle while Hughes was sacked by Manchester City last season after failing to convince the club’s rich owners.
“I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter Milan or Real Madrid,” said Allardyce.
“It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time.
“Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem. It’s not where I’m suited to, it’s just where I’ve been for most of the time.
“It’s not a problem to take me into the higher reaches of the Champions League or Premier League and would make my job a lot easier in winning it.”
Hughes has made a good start at Fulham and returns to familiar ground having managed at Ewood Park three years ago.
“He was given the chance and unfortunately at that stage of his career they decided to have a change.
“You look back on it and he’ll be very disappointed because they only lost two games I think. But that is the way it is sometimes, there’s a perception that other people can do better than you, but often the reality is not the case.”
