The future of Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce is in doubt and he is facing a key FA Cup clash at Stoke this weekend.

Butt: "Things will never improve unless he's given time.

"This club of all clubs can show you that. I've been here for three-and-a-half years now and I've had four managers.

"Sooner or later someone has got to say this is the manager we're going to stand by, in good times and bad times, and hopefully get the rewards at the end of it.

"If you look at all the big teams, like (Manchester) United and Arsenal, they're the clubs that have stood by managers for a long time. If we do that, I'm sure we'll do it right."
