Hoddle calls for new England approach


Bookmark and Share

Saturday 21 June 2014

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has said it is time a drastic revamp took place of English football in order to compete at big tournaments and avoid more disappointment, Sky Sports has reported.



England crashed out of the World Cup following Italy’s inability to beat in form Costa Rica and exit the tournament at the earliest point since 1958 – just eight days into the competition and losing their two opening games.


England now face a battle to avoid their worst performance at a World Cup finals in the country’s history, with a defeat to unbeaten Costa Rica not an option.


And Hoddle believes that if there is not a change in the coaching system of English talent then short comings will still be talking points for pundits in a decade’s time.


“This is a much bigger picture of how we’ve got to change and what other countries have done with their youngsters,” Hoddle explained.


“That’s a long-term thing. That isn’t about too many foreigners in our country stopping youngsters, this is a bigger picture.


“And this goes back to how we might have to change our attitude and what we desire from a young footballer of five, six, seven years old, what I call pre-coaching before they get to eight years of age and they start getting coached.


“This is about being happy with the ball.”


While there have been calls for Roy Hodgson to field another youthful squad as the focus switches to qualification for Euro 2016 Hoddle believes senior players should be kept to help guide the younger generation through despite their short comings at major tournaments for their country.
