Steve McClaren urges FA to appoint Englishman

Former England manager Steve McClaren says the Football Association must once again return to employing a native manager when Fabio Capello steps down following Euro 2012.

Capello has confirmed he will retire after England's campaign in Ukraine and Poland, should they qualify, and the FA has already stated a preference for an Englishman to replace the Italian.

McClaren benefitted from a similar sentiment when succeeding Swede Sven-Goran Eriksson - only to see his reign came to a swift end when he failed to secure a place at Euro 2008 - and the current Wolfsburg coach believes an Englishman would be best placed to manage the national side.

Eriksson, who managed England from 2001-2006, was the first foreign boss in the country's history.

"Do I agree with the principle of having an English manager? Absolutely - without a shadow of a doubt," McClaren said. "In a club, it's more multinational. If you manage a national team, you've got 23 English players.

''It is about adapting to the way English players are. You've seen it with even the top club managers - it's a difficult job. It will really help if you ever get a winter break, because everywhere I've been has one and I've seen the benefits. Even if it is just a week, you clear up injuries.

"The person that comes in needs to be experienced, needs to have won things, needs to have experience of Europe. In two years, there will be some different names."

Harry Redknapp, Sam Allardyce and Steve Bruce have all expressed tentative interest in replacing Capello.
