Pearce sympathy for homegrown candidates

Stuart Pearce has backed the potential appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari as successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson, although the Manchester City boss sympathises with homegrown managers who appear to out of the running for the England job.

Pearce himself was suggested as a candidate for the position when Eriksson announced he would leave after this summer's World Cup, although Scolari is now firm favourite after the Football Association flew to Lisbon to meet him.

English managers such as Alan Curbishley, Steve McClaren and Sam Allardyce were also linked with the job but FA officials are in negotiations with Brazilian Scolari, who is currently manager of Portugal.

Pearce said: 'I do recognise that there are Englishmen who feel they are experienced enough to do the job and I can understand they are frustrated if they haven't got it.

'I am surprised it's not an Englishman because the groundswell of public opinion seemed to be pushing towards someone of that nature.

'When my name was linked with the job I said immediately I didn't believe I had the experience. Whoever gets it will have my full support.'
