A protest sign left outside West Ham owner David Sullivan's mansion, calling for manager Sam Allardyce to be sacked, has been removed, as per The Telegraph.

"Fat Sam Out" read the banner, which was posted outside Sullivan's house in Essex.

Said West Ham fan Steven Garner, who was quoted in The Telegraph article:

We travelled from Hemel Hempstead on Tuesday night to put the banner up after we heard Sam wasn't going to be sacked. It was a peaceful protest, we didn't mean any harm, we just wanted to get our point across.

The sign is no longer there. Allardyce, however, remains very much in place as the manager who took the Hammers to a 13th-place finish in the 2013-14 Premier League season.
