Hear it here before anyone else! Sam Allardyce opens up to talkSPORT. The complete second series of On The Sporting Couch starts on Sunday 4th November at 8pm on talkSPORT with an in-depth interview with former England manager Sam Allardyce.
On the Sporting Couch is hosted by sports broadcaster and psychotherapist Gary Bloom and is a ground-breaking and award winning series of programmes that addresses mental health issues in sport. It features elite sportspeople who have been brave enough to undertake an on-air therapy session to talk candidly about their struggles.
Big Sam discusses the pressures and strain of being a Premier League manager, his addiction to the beautiful game, the fallout from his short lived reign as England boss and the personal stress that caused him.
Over next ten weeks there’s the opportunity to hear some of the compelling episodes that were broadcast over the summer here on TalkSport and also plenty of new interviews with guests including Stiliyan Petrov, Sharron Davies and fellow Olympic medallist Katherine Merry.
Stiliyan’s story of his battle with leukaemia is particularly inspiring after the former Aston Villa and Celtic midfielder was only given a 25% chance surviving.
