Barwick: English bosses not good enough

Brian Barwick has revealed an Englishman never stood a chance of being appointed national team boss.

The Football Association chief executive said he would have preferred to have a homegrown coach in charge of the England team but insists none of the current crop are good enough.

Explaining the process that eventually led to Fabio Capello's appointment, Barwick wrote in the News of the World: 'I wrote out a template and put it against our current crop of English managers and not one of them ticked all the boxes.

'It has to be our ambition to have an English boss, but we have to be realistic.'

Barwick also confirmed one of the reasons he and FA director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking went for Capello was the Italian's experience of handling big egos.
