According to the head coach of the League One club Southend United, Phil Brown believes that Chris Hughton has what it takes to become the manager of the England national football team which is currently without any coach following allegations of malpractice which forced Sam Allardyce to resign his managerial position after only 1 game in charge.
Sam Allardyce was named as the manager of the England national side on July 22 of 2016 and he led the team to a 2018 qualification FIFA World Cup victory over Slovakia but a series of events occurred which resulted with Allardyce stepping down from coaching that team and now the Football Association (FA) is in search of someone who can calm things down and become a long term solution for everything that has been going on in recent weeks.
Phil Brown is the manager of Southend United and he has stated that Chris Hughton of Brighton & Hove Albion is a viable option.
“Chris Hughton comes to mind for me because of the great job he’s been doing in the English game. He’s a tactician and a technician and he’s been at some big clubs both as a player and as a manager.He knows how to deal with the stature of the players but there are a lot of good managers out there.Sean Dyche is another one but whoever gets the job has to be squeaky clean and if there are any skeletons in your closest then don’t apply.” Phil Brown stated.
The resignation of Sam Allardyce has occurred in a very inconvenient time for the England national football team as they are attempting to qualify into the 2018 FIFA World Cup and their upcoming encounter is not so far as they will be facing off with Scotland on November 11.
England is currently at the top of group F of the 2018 FIFA World Cup European Qualifying but without having any coach, they might start to drop points.
Chris Hughton is currently in charge of Brighton & Hove Albion and even though he is not such a well-known manager in comparison to other popular figures in the world of football, Phil Brown is certain that Hughton can become the head coach of the English national side.
