The Football Association have confirmed that they will not be extending the contract of former Coventry City defender Stuart Pearce when it expires at the end of this month.
Pearce had been manager of the U21's who performed miserably in the European U21 Championships in Israel and was told today that his contract was not being renewed.
David Bernstein told the FA.com "I'd like to thank Stuart Pearce for his hard work. Nobody can doubt his commitment to the job throughout his time as Under-21 Coach.
"He has done extremely well in qualifying for Finals tournaments, but after the disappointment of the past two tournaments, we believe it is time to change Coach.
"On behalf of everyone at The FA I'd like to wish Stuart well for the future."
