The former Tottenham, Manchester United and England striker was announced as the new Boro manager on Thursday, leaving his role as attacking coach at Upton Park.
In his first managers position, the 49 year old admitted that Allardyce, who has 25 years worth of managerial experience behind him, had helped Sheringham to make his decision.
“I spoke to Sam and said I’d had an approach. He said ‘wow’ and when I told him who the club was he said ‘take it’,” said Sheringham to the Comet.
“He’d heard the chairman is good, the training ground is fantastic and it’s a club that is positive and wants to go places.”
With Stevenage having released thirteen players earlier in the week, Sheringham must start work quickly, building a squad and selecting his backroom staff.
“Sam also said ‘when you’re picking your backroom staff, make sure you can depend on them, have a good look at their characters. You’re going to see them on a day-to-day basis and talk to them a lot so make sure they’re good people.”
