That is the claim of Jason Burt of the Daily Telegraph.
“I’m a big fan of Alan Pardew,” explains Jason. “He possibly lost his way a bit after West Ham.
"But I think he’s one of the best English coaches around – maybe in a year or two we’ll be talking about him as an England manager for the future.”
Considering Pardew is one of only four of the twenty Premiership managers who is ENGLISH . it is hardly surprising his name will get a mention.
The others are Harry Redknapp, Steve Bruce and Roy Hodgson.
