Pardew hoping to manage England

22 May 2012 17:46

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed he would like to coach England once he proves himself in the Premier League.

The 50-year-old helped guide Newcastle to a surprising fifth spot in the English Premier League in 2011/12.

Despite being voted both Barclays and League Managers' Association Manager of the Season, Pardew said he still had room for improvement.

"To be recognised by people who do the job and understand football is fantastic," he told the Evening Standard.

"I will not have proven myself good enough until I've been in the Premier League for four or five years, won a trophy and competed in Europe."

The former West Ham said he thought Harry Redknapp could have landed the England role ahead of Roy Hodgson were it not for the role of the media.

"Do I think Harry should have got the job? I thought at the time if the media hadn't played it so strongly maybe he'd have got it," Pardew said.

"Because there was such a big push for him, maybe the FA thought they'd do something else. I've got no problem with Roy. He deserved it, he had all the right credentials. I'm just glad it's an Englishman.

"Maybe the initial move for Sven-Goran Eriksson was because they thought another English manager was going to get pilloried by the press.

"It just got all out of hand. Foreign managers have changed nothing.

"The England team has not improved and these foreign managers have done actually no better than the English managers who went before."
