Pearce puts forward his case

Published Add your comment

Stuart Pearce is ready to apply for the full-time England under-21 job when the Football Association confirm the role.

Pearce, who is the leading contender to coach the under-21s after taking them to the European Championship semi-finals, was appointed for the finals earlier in the season on a part-time basis but losing his job at Manchester City means he is unemployed for the first time since leaving school at 16.

"I am unemployed for the first time in my life," he said. "I don´t know whether they put it out for tenure for people to apply to. It will be a case for myself and the FA to sit down and if I fancy it and like what goes with it, I´ll apply for the job."
