Chico Flores won Twitter with a couple of outrageous tweets at Sam Allardyce's expense

With Sam Allardyce embroiled in unfavourable headlines, now is as good a time as any to ponder some of the former West Ham boss’s more memorable moments.

This clip, for example, is rarely out of sight for long.

The incident came about when then-Swansea player, Chico Flores, was seen to be rolling on the floor in pain. Big Sam felt the performance was a little less than believable, and demonstrated as much.

And now Allardyce appears to be having a spot of bother himself, Flores has taken to Twitter to make his own feelings plain.

Twitter’s translation tool translates Marca’s tweet as: “Scandal in England! The national team coach of football, Sam Allardyce, is in a mess…”

The defender, who now plays football in Qatar, proceeded to retweet people’s reactions to his mischievous tweet, before posting something a little less cryptic.

Chico Flores? Cheeky Flores, more like.
