LONDON - The England Football Association is considering to bring back Steve Mcclaren as the next Three Lions boss after Fabio Capello steps down in two years.
England failed to qualify for Euro 2008 under McClaren, The Sun reports.
FA head of football development Trevor Brooking said: “I’m sure if Steve continues to be a success his name will be in the frame again.”
“If you think he will be a lot more experienced this time around and he has learnt his lesson, then why not? I wouldn’t rule out anyone, it would be very unfair to do that,” he added.
Harry Redknapp, Sam Allardyce and Roy Hodgson have also been considered as England’s next manager.
But FA bigwigs believe McClaren’s record in Europe makes him better equipped now than when he took over from Sven Goran Eriksson in 2006.
Brooking said: “If you are successful it is the right time. If you asked Steve, he probably wanted that little bit more experience. That is why he has gone abroad and he has adapted really well. We definitely want to go English.” (ANI)
