New Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce is confident British managers can still get top Barclays Premier League jobs despite the influx of foreign coaching talent. However, Allardyce remains convinced that, if he is good enough, a Briton can still get to the top in the Premier League if given the chance by an owner. He said: “(We won’t know) until such time as a new owner at one of the big clubs is brave enough to appoint a manager that’s done exceptionally well – and there are many of them. “Half the problem is that the British managers who do well in the Championship – and that is being infiltrated by foreign coaches now – only get a chance to manager in the Premier League by promoting the team that they are actually working for. “Very rarely do they go and pluck one from the lower leagues. I don’t know who was the last one – was it Brendan (Rodgers), where Swansea gave him a chance? “But we all face that challenge and if you are good enough and you believe in yourself, I think you can eventually get there. “I started at Limerick in 1991 – who thought I’d be here?” However, Allardyce admits that the presence of so many important coaches in the English top flight significantly increases the challenge for their home-grown counterparts. He said: “We are creating a huge monster in the Premier League, which I have enjoyed working in since 2001. But it has its repercussions as far as English, British coaches, managers, physios, players – there’s a legacy to bear with it. “But we all enjoy where we are and we all enjoy the publicity it brings us. Certainly, it’s the biggest brand in the world of sport today, so it brings everybody from the world to want to work in this country, so we have too challenge ourselves against the best of them.” Press Association The 60-year-old, who once famously remarked he would never be employed by a top-four club because his name is not “Allardici”, was handed his latest rescue mission, this time at the Stadium of Light, when he was appointed as Dick Advocaat’s replacement last week. As he did so, German Jurgen Klopp was taking up the reins at Liverpool and in the process, joining an exclusive club of elite overseas bosses, including Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal, Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini, plying their trade in England.
ONE of Guyana’s most famous boxers, Terrence Alli, was over the weekend named as an inductee of the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame.Alli, 58, made his debut in 1979 against Winston Goodridge, winning on points, and it was the perfect start for the man many felt had placed Guyana on the world stage long before Andrew ‘Six Heads’ Lewis won the country’s first World Title in 2001.The seventh annual New York State Boxing Hall of Fame (NYSBHOF) induction dinner will be held on April 29, at Russo’s On the Bay in Howard Beach, New York.“This day is for all these inductees who worked so hard for our enjoyment,” NYSBHOF president Bob Duffy said, “and for what they did for New York State boxing.”Each attending inductee (or direct descendant of Alli) will receive a custom-designed belt signifying his or her induction into the NYSBHOF.The life and career of Terrence Alli embodies both the glory and the tragedy that often lurk not far from one another in the world of boxing.He was an exciting, eccentric and socially-conscious fighter who became the world’s top Super Lightweight contender.Alli finished his career with 52 wins (25 by knockout), 15 losses and two draws but will be forever be remembered as one of the best fighters Guyana has ever produced but who has never won a world title.Alli’s first shot at a world title was in 1985 against Harry Arroyo for the IBF World Lightweight Title but, the Guyanese was knocked out by the American.Eight years later, Alli found himself against Mexican Julio Cesar Chavez for the WBC World Super Lightweight Title.Guyanese at home and abroad were glued to their television screens to witness the classic showdown, hoping that Alli could take down the man who at the time had defended his title against the likes of Hector Camacho, Angel Hernandez and Meldrick Taylor.However, luck was not on Alli’s side, since he was beaten by the Mexican.The Guyanese entered the ring seven times and lost them all; including losses to ‘Six Heads’ Lewis for the vacant Guyanese Welterweight Title and his WBC International Super Welterweight Title against Quirino Garcia (Unanimous Decision)To his credit, Alli was the USBA Lightweight Champion and NABF Super Lightweight Title-holder.Perhaps sadder still, by all accounts he feels he has been forsaken by the country that he always proudly represented with such patriotic vigour, even when he had to go abroad to advance his career.
