England Football Association director Trevor Brooking has said that England could wait until a few days before the European championships kick off before appointing a replacement for Fabio Capello.
Fabio Capello resigned from his post as the England manager a few weeks ago, but a replacement is yet to be found.
The England Football Association initially announced that it intends to announce a replacement for Fabio Capello as quickly as possible.
However, the manager to appoint only England under 21 manager Stuart Pearce as the caretaker manager for now. Harry Redknapp has been the favourite to take over as the next England manager, but the current Tottenham manager has refused to commit himself to the job.
As a result, Sir Trevor Brooking has said that England are not under compulsion to announce a new manager as soon as possible. Hence, they will be taking their time before making the appointment, as it needs to be perfect this time around. The appointment of Fabio Capello was expected to bring major success to England, but it has not happened that way.
Further, Fabio Capello’s huge £ 6 million salary demands made it look extremely a null return on the investment. Sir Trevor Brooking has said that the football Association is not prepared to make the same mistake this time around and are willing to take their time before making the appointment.
“Everything will be in place. The backroom staff is very good. Whoever comes in will be really happy with that. The issue is the timing that is why we don’t think we are in any rush. I think you could get somebody parachuted in a few days before it, though I’m sure there are some people in our group who don’t want that,” said Trevor Brooking ahead of the England’s match with Netherlands.
