Wigan chairman Dave Whelan says England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson should be replaced by Latics boss Paul Jewell and Manchester City's Stuart Pearce.
Whelan's call for Football Association action comes after Eriksson's remarks to an undercover tabloid reporter.
He told the Manchester Evening News: "It's gross misconduct, he's got to go, if it was up to me I'd say goodbye.
"My automatic choice would be Paul and Stuart, the nation would get behind them and back them to the hilt."
Whelan's is the latest voice to level high-profile criticism at Eriksson.
Aston Villa boss David O'Leary has already reacted angrily to Eriksson for discussing a potential job at Aston Villa, while striker Michael Owen has been forced to issue a statement contradicting the England boss's belief that he is not happy at Newcastle.
Whelan told the Manchester Evening News: "He's broken one of the game's golden rules. It's gross misconduct and he has to go.
"I've criticised him in the past but there should be no way back from this, this is an absolute scandal, a disgrace.
"You simply do not expect the England manager to openly discuss his future plans and to air his views about what he thinks about players in his squad.
"He has lost the confidence of the nation due to his actions. The whole thing is absolutely scandalous.
"The country and every football fan must feel sick about this whole issue. I know I certainly do, especially with the World Cup in Germany only months away.
"The FA, however, is not as strong as it should be in these kind of issues."
Meanwhile the League Managers' Association has called for a line to be drawn under the affair.
An LMA statement said: "We wish to reiterate our total support and backing for England in this year's World Cup.
"Our managers will continue to give Sven and the FA their complete support and backing."
