Former England striker Gary Lineker has criticised the FA’s new commision programme.

The commission has been set up by FA Chairman Greg Dyke to revitalise English football. It will investigate how the future of the England national team can improve.

But the Match of the day presenter says the commision is ‘pointless’.

Lineker tweeted: "No wonder they announced Glenn Hoddle early on @FA commission. Most of the others are utterly pointless. Expected better from Greg Dyke,"

Eight people, including the former England manager Glenn Hoddle have been named in the group, along with ex-England player Danny Mills, and former Leeds manager Howard Wilkinson.

This isn't the first time that Lineker has made controversial tweets about the England national side. he took to twitter to describe England’s performance against Ukraine in their world cup qualifier as ‘awful’, which he later deleted.

He was then faced with a potentially awkward meeting with the England manager Roy Hodgson, when he was a guest on Match of the Day, but nothing was said about the comment.

Lineker though isn't the only one to criticise the new set up. Former England defender Sol Campbell has accused the FA of lacking diversity.

He told BBC Sport: “I wouldn't mind if they had some black players in there, black players who have actually done something for club and country,". All of the eight members on the panel are white.
