Allardyce has emerged as the favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson with England and reports claim the FA have already spoken with the Black Cats man.

McCarthy believes that Allardyce has all the credentials required to improve the current state of the national side following their last-16 defeat to Iceland at Euro 2016.

The Ipswich boss insists that the 61-year-old has always been able to get the best out of his players and feels his record of getting results speaks for itself.

McCarthy said: “Sam’s just been excellent, I think. I don’t know how many things he’s won. Promotions, stays in the league. He gets the best out of people.

“Somebody wants to write a CV for him. What’s his CV? He gets players for not a lot, he gets the best out of them and generally they get promoted, stay up or upset the apple cart with everybody else.

“He just gets the best out of people. Surely that’s got to be the remit of any manager.”
