Rio Ferdinand wants England coaching job

After working during Euro 2016 as a pundit, Rio Ferdinand has given his views on the problems the England side have to solve.

Despite no coaching experience, Rio Ferdinand insists that he should be the next England boss.

Roy Hodgson resigned following the Three Lions’ humiliating last 16 exit at Euro 2016 to underdogs Iceland and the hunt for his successor is well underway.

Sam Allardyce is the current bookmakers’ favourite for the job but Ferdinand, who won 81 caps with the national team, has offered his own view on the team as well as throwing his hat in the ring.

‘When you don’t know your starting 11 when you get to the tournament and don’t know your best formation, there’s a problem,’ Ferdinand asserted in an interview with Copa 90.

“When you perform in a team, individuals can only perform to their greatest ability when the platform at the bottom is set, the foundations of what you want your team to do.

“When a player then is not performing too well as an individual, he can fall back on that platform of structure, the team, the unity.

“That’s why I should be a manager, I would take it all day long.”
