English coaches need 'favour' from McClaren

Bryan Robson has called on Steve McClaren to 'do all the English managers and coaches a favour' by succeeding as England head coach and proving home-grown bosses are good enough to handle top jobs.

McClaren takes over from Sven-Goran Eriksson after this summer's World Cup finals, and Robson has backed his predecessor in the Middlesbrough hot-seat to fare well.

The former England captain, who turned down the job when it was offered to him in 1996, insists McClaren has all the right credentials - and admitted too he 'would consider' the position himself if it came up again in the future.

Robson said: 'I think it's a good decision from the Football Association to go with an Englishman. Steve McClaren can do all the English managers and coaches a real favour to a certain degree if he does well with England.

'If he does well then people are going to look at him and say 'we don't need to go foreign' - and realise there are good enough managers in England.

'We all just hope that he does do a good job - and he's got every chance, because it's a good set of players at the moment.'

Robson still recalls his own decision not to become England coach.

'I was offered it years ago when I was working with Terry Venables - but I thought it was a bit too early for me,' he said.

'I've got a job to do with West Brom at the moment, to try and get them back into the Premiership.

'In the future if you are doing well with whatever club you are with - and if the England job does become available again, and people approach you - it is something that you would consider.

'In the future it is something I'd consider again.'

Robson, promoting his autobiography 'Robbo' this week, is tipping David Beckham to be a key figure this summer as England go for World Cup glory in Germany.

'You hope he comes into the competition in really good form,' he said.

'At Real Madrid he's been playing well; he hasn't had any injury problems, which should help him.

'At the last World Cup he and Michael Owen both carried injuries into the competition, and it did take that edge of their game. But Beckham can be really influential if he is 100% fit.

'It is a risk to go in with injured players - but if the players are good enough and rated as your best players, then you've got to take a bit of a chance with it.

'That's why the manager will give Wayne Rooney every chance to prove he's fit, because he's such a big player for England.'

Robson also feels England have the right blend this time of youth and experience.

'There's definitely a good blend in the squad - with people like Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Beckham and Steven Gerrard,' he said.

'They've all played in major championships before, so there's a nice bit of experience in there.

'Then you've got all these young lads in the squad, so it's going to be interesting how well the young kids do.

'I think if all the components come together we have a great chance. The team we are going to have to beat, though, are the Brazilians.'
