Sam Allardyce has no interest in returning to Crystal Palace to replace the sacked Frank de Boer.
De Boer was shown the door by Palace on Monday, having lost each of his four games in charge, with Palace failing to score.
The Dutchman spent 77 days at Selhurst Park after replacing Allardyce, who kept the Eagles in the top flight last term after taking over with the club under threat of the drop.
“Just to make it clear for everybody and to stop the speculation, I spoke to Steve just before I got here and said that, for me, I wouldn’t be ready to come back,” he told Sky Sports.
CPFC have parted company with Frank de Boer.

“I’ve made a decision and I wouldn’t feel comfortable taking any position as a football manager as I’m enjoying my life at the moment, watching everyone else [dealing] with the pressures of the Premier League.
“There’s certainly huge pressure – more than ever in the Premier League – as we can see by Frank losing his job.”
