Big Sam makes no commitment over Man Utd skipper Rooney

England coach Sam Allardyce says he hasn’t made a decision about his captain.

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney remains the current Three Lions skipper.

Allardyce, who has added his former Bolton assistant Sammy Lee to his coaching staff, was unveiled at St George’s Park on Monday and said it was “far too early” to reveal who he would like to captain the Three Lions heading into the World Cup qualifying campaign.

After describing his management style as “pragmatic”, he told Sky Sports News HQ: “I’m going to leave that until I meet all the players and get all the staff together.”

He said of his management style: “I think that choosing styles or systems depends on the players available and then who we’re playing.

“My coaching technique is to try and give the players the opportunity to win a football match wherever they are playing, be it home or away. And to make them aware of the opposition, which may change the style of how we play.”
