The unique nature of the England manager's position should make the job irresistible to the right man, 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. Chelsea would probably be able to offer a bigger salary but Bernstein insists the FA are not at a disadvantage.

He said: "This position is so unique that the right person would want to do it on a sensible basis and for the right reasons. It is a very fluid situation, I am not sure if (other clubs searching for managers) helps or hinders. It depends on how the cards fall."
