As soon as Fabio Capello handed in his resignation it was only a matter of time before Arsene Wenger`s name was linked with the job, admittedly in a much more diluted proportion than in times past.
Of course the name everyone wants to see as England manager is Harry Redknapp (I do, and not because I think he might do well, it will just provide some good comedy value all round) and that would be a good choice according to Arsene Wenger, if only because of his nationality.
The boss has always been in favour of national teams having managers coming from the same country.
"I have always been straight in [suggesting an Englishman should be next] - not because I think an English manager can do a better job than any foreign guy, just because you represent your country and it is better if the manager is from there. Especially in a big football country like England." He told the club's official website
"It's now down to the FA to make the right decision and you will not be surprised when I tell you I do not want to interfere with that!"
I shall have to come down on the side of Arsene on this occasion.
I`m not a massive lover of International football, indeed it takes away from the club season for the majority of the time. The major tournaments are a distraction in a footballess summer, but that`s as far as it goes for me.
International football should be about which nation produces the best players, managers and coaching staff, and as such the entire team should share at least their nationality.
I`m not one of these chest-beating, 100% En-gur-land knuckle draggers by a long shot, but if a team can be cobbled together from people from all over the globe then International football becomes even more pointless than it is in the first place.
