Hoddle set for FA commission role

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is set to be handed a role at the Football Association.

• Smith: EPPP -- More questions than answers
• Johnson: The grassroots of recovery
• Palmer: Brooking -- Structural damage

Hoddle, who was sacked as England manager 14 year ago, will be named on the newly formed FA commission as part of chairman Greg Dyke's plans to reverse the fortunes of the English game.

Dyke warned against England's decline in September, while setting the target of reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and winning the 2022 World Cup.

He is concerned about the dwindling number of Englishmen playing in the Premier League, saying it poses for the national team.

Dyke is due to speak at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday when he is expected to confirm the appointment of Hoddle as part of the commission, which is likely to include a number of other key figures.

The Premier League, however, will not sit on the commission after declining an invitation to do so, according to the Guardian.

Hoddle recently told Zap Sportz: "We've got foreign owners, who bring in foreign managers, who bring in foreign players above English players and it's a downward spiral.

"The England manager's job is a hard job as it is and it's going to get harder and harder unless we readdress it with a rule change."
