The Football Association was hit by a new scandal hours after England manager Sam Allardyce was sacked.

The British newspaper The Daily Telegraph has alleged that eight current and former Premier League managers received 'bungs' or illicit payements for player transfers.

The newspaper filmed football agents boasting about how many managers they had paid off.

The newspaper said it would hand over the evidence it had gathered to the FA and the police. 

The newspaper also described other corruption allegations. It alleged that two managers of second-tier clubs had also accepted payments and that another manager was known to demand kickbacks from his own players in return for increasing their wages.
