The line-up for the FA commission - Part 2
The line-up for the FA commission that was set up to improve the long-term prospects of English football is complete after the final two names were announced on Sunday. Here is a look at the other five members of the panel:
The former England boss has regularly voiced his opinions on the state of the national team, and was touted as a possible replacement for Stuart Pearce as England U-21 manager before Gareth Southgate was given the job. During his playing career, he had an attractive, unique style, and should help England discover a new playing philosophy.
The chairman of the Football League since March 2010, Clarke now has over 10 years of experience of high ranking positions in football, including a spell as chairman of Leicester City. He will represent the Football League’s bid to increase the number of its players that are given the chance to make the step up to the Premier League.
Despite it being over 21 years ago, Howard Wilkinson is still the last English manager to win the league title, with Leeds United in 1992. Now the chairman of the League Managers’ Association, his managerial career lasted 30 years, a period which included two spells as England caretaker manager.
Crewe Alexandra’s legendary former manager is one of the best in the business at nurturing talented young players, with many Gresty Road youth products going on to achieve big things in their careers, including David Platt and Danny Murphy. He remains with Crewe as academy manager, with Nick Powell and Ashley Westwood the latest to move on to Premier League clubs.
Never afraid to voice his opinion, Mills, who represented England during the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, has called for a restructuring of English football on multiple occasions. During his playing career, he played for Leeds United and Manchester City among others and is now a football pundit.
