Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger maintains England's next manager must be English.
Fabio Capello has confirmed he intends to leave the role when his contract expires after the 2012 European Championships.
Wenger firmly believes the next man in charge of the Three Lions must be home-grown and said: "I always come out with the same answer. Let the national team take somebody from England and that represents the country. That is the best way to do it."
The likes of Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp, Liverpool coach Roy Hodgson, Sunderland's Steve Bruce and current England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce have all been touted as possible replacements.
