Sam Allardyce has declined to discuss his future after West Brom’s relegation from the Premier League was confirmed on Sunday.
The Baggies lost 3-1 to Arsenal in the Emirates to return to the Championship on the first time.
Allardyce replaced Slaven Bilic in the Hawthorns hotseat last December with a reputation as a survivalist but – for the first time in his career – suffered his first relegation from the top flight.
Asked about his future at West Brom, the 66-year-old said: “I’m not going to answer a question about staying or going.
“It will just be a waste of time because I won’t say if I’m leaving or if I’m staying.
“It’s too early to consider or talk about it. This is the disappointment. Tonight it’s all about getting a day or two off and getting ready for Liverpool.
“The most important thing for me and the players is to give everything we have to try to end the season with pride in your own performance and your own professionalism.
“The big challenge for us is to be able to pick ourselves up as we have done throughout the season.”
Allardyce still has a year on his contract with West Brom, but hasn’t managed the championship since 2012.
And this latest move to England’s second tier went well as he guided West Ham to the Premier League through the play-offs.
