The former England manager, who is currently enjoying a second spell in charge of Twente in the Netherlands, believes the only way to create more intelligent players and strengthen the national side is through a "coach education programme", which he would be keen to oversee at St George's Park.

McClaren said: "When I'm past being able to run around the field, I've got a lot of experiences, good and bad, which I think I can pass on.

"Ultimately, I'm teacher, I'm a coach, and I like to coach players and I like to coach coaches.

"We have to coach the coaches better and that will improve the English game and the English player."

McClaren believes he can coach in England again, despite Aston Villa cancelling an interview in 2011, and then only lasting three months at Nottingham Forest before resigning.

"My next job was going to be overseas after that, for sure," he said.

"I just felt the feeling within England, time had not healed enough. I thought it was the right time to go back to England [after leaving Wolfsburg at the start of 2011] but it was too soon because of the reaction obviously from supporters.

"It was about an acceptance of myself in England after the England job, so I think that will take time."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
