Life hasn’t been easy for the FA lately, as after they had to hunt down a new manager for the England national squad following Roy Hodgson’s horrible Euro 2016 campaign, they will have to do the same now due to Sam Allardyce vacating the post as result of a scandal.
Currently Gareth Southgate is the interim manager and despite his ambitions to get a permanent job, the FA will most likely appoint another person. Not a lot of footballers from the England squad have spoken after the Allardyce scandal, especially in regards to who the next coach could be. However, when asked about the topic Gary Cahill didn’t shy away and stated that he would prefer an Englishman for the job, but also said he is open to the possibility of a foreign manager.
It is certainly not a bad idea to have an Englishman leading the team, but nevertheless, it’s a bit hard to find a world-class manager now, given that most of them have tried their luck and didn’t do all too well.
