FA chief wants English boss

FOOTBALL: New Football Association chairman David Bernstein has declared his intention to hire an Englishman as Fabio Capello’s successor. Bernstein beat ex-Arsenal director David Dein to the role yesterday and used his first interview to discuss the national team. “If he was English that would be preferable for obvious reasons and I think there is a national desire for that,” said Bernstein, chairman of Wembley Stadium since 2008.
