Barnwell: Top bosses want to abandon friendlies

Top managers have underlined how they would prefer England to host training camps rather than take part in more international friendlies.

Following the 1-0 defeat by Spain last week England number two Terry Venables claimed squad `get-togethers' would be more constructive and League Managers' Association chief executive John Barnwell revealed his organisation's members would be happier to release their players without the threat of injury or fatigue.

The Daily Telegraph has reported there will be a further meeting of the LMA before England boss Steve McClaren and the Football Association - who need the matches to host games at the new Wembley - are approached.

LMA chief executive John Barnwell told the newspaper: 'Having longer periods in training camps instead of friendly matches seems a fairly obvious improvement.

'The benefit to managers is obvious, as it reduces the risk of their players returning from international duty injured or exhausted.

'We put this to the FA four years ago with the 20 Premiership managers supportive, but there was very little support from the FA.

'We're in the process of having area meetings and we will be discussing a range of issues from the national coach and friendly matches to sin-bins, blood substitutions and the issue of players coming back on after injury.'
