LMA chief Bevan calls for investment into coaching

Richard Bevan, the chief executive of the League Managers Association (LMA), has called for "strong leadership" to resolve the issues surrounding the England team.

Bevan believes that England is lagging well behind in encouraging and developing young coaches, which has a knock-on effect in producing talented English footballers.

The LMA, Professional Footballers Association, Football Association and Premier League held high level talks about combating the lack of young players coming through and now Bevan has highlighted the scarcity of young coaches emerging in this country as one of the root causes of England's failure at the highest level.

''This summer's tournament has highlighted the need in England for a coherent strategy, accountability and strong leadership at the top of the national game,'' he said in Manager magazine. "The future success of football in England requires the game's major stakeholders to work together in an efficient and progressive way.

"A clear, unifying framework for the development of talent must be built and delivered. Improved technical and tactical skills are a priority for our young players. That improvement can only come about with significant investment in our young coaches and managers.

"Coaching has been referred to as the 'golden thread' that runs through the game. The National Football Centre, St. George's Park, will be the essential element in the plan to attract talent into coaching and increase the number of skilled coaches working across the country. We are falling behind the leading countries in this area and it is time to catch up.''
