Thierry Henry was backed as a shock contender for the vacant position.

However, it’s seasoned hand Allardyce, 69, who fancies another crack at international management.

“I’ve had quite a few Welsh coaches and know them quite well. You never know if you get on the shortlist for an interview,” he told No Tippy Tappy Football

“I’d always take an interview, I wouldn’t turn an interview down. You’ve got a team that’s done brilliantly over the last few years but who are the next generation?

“Where’s the next Gareth Bale? Teams like that always have to have one special player.

“With other countries they have one special player who can actually make the expectations for the nation greater than what they think because they can win a game any time.”

Allardyce was last seen in the dugout at Leeds United during the final games of the 2022/23 campaign.

However, he couldn’t keep them up in the Premier League.

Allardyce scored his first international management job with England in 2016.

He won his first and only game in charge, when Adam Lallana scored deep into injury time to secure all three points against Slovakia on the opening day of qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Following allegations of malpractice, Allardyce left the role by mutual consent on 27 September, having managed the team for just 67 days and one match.
