England should no longer have to go looking for foreign managers in the future if St George's Park does its job, according to the national football centre's chairman David Sheepshanks.

The £100-million project in Burton will take its first influx of England players next month when the under-17s get first use, followed by the under-21s in September and then Roy Hodgson's senior side in October ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland.

But it is the focus on teaching which Sheepshanks hopes will drive a production line for the next generation of managers, and he said: "We have identified a number of desired outcomes that come from St George's Park. They include increasing the number of qualified coaches, increasing the standard of coaching and also includes having more home-grown managers managing our Premier League teams and available to manage our international teams."
