The search for the next England manager will not be hindered by competition from clubs, Football Association chairman David Bernstein has insisted.
The sacking of Andre Villas-Boas by Chelsea has raised the prospect of both the Stamford Bridge club and the FA going for the same man. Bernstein however believes the unique nature of the England job will prove so attractive to the right candidate that it should prove irresistible - even if the manager could earn a greater salary at a club.
Asked if the FA were at a disadvantage compared with other clubs in the market for a manager, Bernstein said: "This position is so unique that the right person would want to do it on a sensible basis and for the right reasons."
