Sam Allardyce turned down the chance of a lucrative move to China before taking over at Crystal Palace
London: Sam Allardyce turned down the chance of a lucrative move to China before taking over at Crystal Palace. Chinese clubs are throwing mind-boggling amounts of cash around in a bid to lure the world's best players. "Did I have an offer? Yes. I didn't go. I could have gone but I preferred to stay here," he said. "It's difficult for a player or a club to turn that down, it's just the way of the world and changing forces in the football world. Time will tell if it's the right thing to do," Allardyce added.
