FA Will Wait To Appoint New England Manager

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 02 March 2012, 16:04

The Football Association have revealed that they will wait until the back end of the season before naming the new England manager. A list of potential candidates has been drawn up but, with a number of the managers in contention currently employed, the FA do not want to disrupt their respective seasons and will therefore start the interview process in May, just a month before the European Champions get underway. Harry Redknapp remains the overwhelming favourite in the Next Permanent England Manager betting market and was also the popular choice in a Next England Manager Poll conducted by thesackrace.com.

Stuart Pearce was in caretaker charge for England’s last gasp defeat to Holland on Wednesday and he has reiterated his desire to manage his country at Euro 2012. However, Pearce has ruled out taking over permanently as he wants to continue his development as a manager. West Brom boss Roy Hodgson is the other English manager in the frame, with all the other potential candidates foreign, including Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger.

Speculation has been rife that Mourinho will leave the Bernabeu at the end of the season, with many reports suggesting he will return to the Premier League. He has also inevitably been linked to the England job and can currently be found with odds of 11/1 with Stan James. With Guardiola’s contract at Barcelona coming to an end in June he has also been identified as a possible replacement but realistically he is likely to sign a new deal with the Spanish giants. Wenger has been touted as an option and if he fails to guide Arsenal to a top four finish then he may be up for grabs in the summer.
