England in no hurry to name boss

England's new manager may not be appointed until a few days before Euro 2012, according to Sir Trevor Brooking.

Caretaker boss Stuart Pearce on Wednesday oversaw a 3-2 friendly defeat by Holland in the first game since former manager Fabio Capello resigned. Pearce has made it clear he would be happy to stay in charge for the European Championship this summer.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp remains favourite for the position as Spurs battle for a Champions League place, and it therefore seems likely the Three Lions will not know who will be at the helm for some time.

Brooking, one of a group of Football Association officials in charge of making the appointment, does not envisage that being a problem though, because of the thorough preparations being made for the tournament.

"Everything will be in place," Brooking told The Independent. "The backroom staff is very good. Whoever comes in will be really happy with that.

"The issue is the timing, that is why we don't think we are in any rush. I think you could get somebody parachuted in a few days before it, though I'm sure there are some people in our group who don't want that."

Brooking added that discussions about the new man had been on the back burner ahead of the international friendly match against the Netherlands.

"We've been concentrating on the Holland game," he said. "Now we'll sit down in the next few days and see what the timeframe is.

"We will take our time. I don't see anything happening soon. We obviously want to be aware of all the sensitivities before taking it forward. There are sensitivities."
