MPs have voiced support for England coach Sven Goran Eriksson after he was the victim of a "sting" by a newspaper.
Mr Eriksson revealed he would quit after the World Cup
The Swede was filmed by the News of the World saying he would quit after the next World Cup and making derogatory comments about some of his players.
Labour MP Alan Keen, chairman of the Commons football committee, said Mr Eriksson's future should be determined "on the field".
He has tabled a motion, offering the coach his "best wishes".
It has also been signed by the Liberal Democrat sports spokesman Bob Russell and Labour MPs David Taylor and Clive Efford.
Mr Russell told the BBC News website the motion was "really trying to get the media off Mr Eriksson's back".
He added that he thought "noises off" were not helping England's preparation for the World Cup in Germany this summer.
Mr Eriksson was exposed by the News of the World on Sunday after revealing information to a reporter disguised as a wealthy Arab.
He was quoted suggesting he would be prepared to become manager of Aston Villa as part of a takeover.
He also divulged thoughts on David Beckham and Michael Owen, and gave away opinions about Rio Ferdinand and Shaun Wright-Phillips.
Mr Eriksson has been England coach since 2001.
