During the meeting Allardyce criticized his predecessor on the post of national team coach - Roy Hodgson and the FA itself.
Representatives of the Association declined to give a comment, noting that they had turned to The Daily Telegraph with a request to send them a transcript of the conversation with Allardyce.
