Premier League chairman David Richards is not fit to perform the role, according to Wigan counterpart Dave Whelan.

Richards´ assessment this week that foreign players have damaged the national side and ultimately cost former England coach Steve McClaren his job when the team failed to qualify for Euro 2008 has come in for criticism.

And Wigan chairman Whelan made it clear he believes Richards´ comments only highlight the fact he is not the right man for the job telling the Guardian: "It is well known within the Premier League that I don´t support David Richards in any way."
