Ex-England caretaker boss Peter Taylor believes that the next England boss needs to be native to Britain, and has pointed to David Beckham, Alan Shearer or Gary Neville to take the job as next manager.
"Ten years ago I would have said you need a manager with experience,” Taylor told talkSPORT.
“But now I’ve had a look at the situation and I think anybody that’s played for England on lots of occasions could easily manage England.
“You look at David Beckham, Gary Neville, Alan Shearer. They would have a lot of respect from people because of what they have done in their careers.
“And they could easily go in and take the right staff with them to make sure they get all the bits and pieces done.”
Beckham, who played for Manchester United for 10 years under legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, would have certainly picked up some managing tips in his time playing the game – not just from Manchester United, but from playing in Spain, Italy and America.
Taylor believes that with the back up of the FA, Beckham’s lack of experience wouldn’t be such an issue.
“[Beckham] could easily organise a team, pick a team, and get staff to make sure they prepare correctly," Taylor said.
“They would have every back-up needed, that’s the beauty of the FA.
“Working for the FA was brilliant because there's nothing they don’t do for you to give you every chance to be successful."
