Glenn Hoddle: Interested in England job

Glenn Hoddle has said he would welcome discussions with the FA over the England job but there has been no approach from them so far.

The likes of Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen have all given their support for Hoddle to return to the England set-up, 18 years after managing the team at the 1998 World Cup.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be the number one target, but with Arsenal set to offer the 66-year-old a new contract, the three-man FA committee may be forced to look elsewhere – perhaps in Hoddle’s direction.

“If I’m asked to speak to the FA, my answer would be: ‘Of course, any proud Englishman would want to discuss this opportunity,” Hoddle said.

“However, it’s simply not something I have to consider currently. If the situation changed, that would be the point at which I would consider what to do and listen to what the FA said.”
