Robson opposed to O'Neill option
Bryan Robson
Robson won 90 caps for England
West Brom manager Bryan Robson believes former Celtic boss Martin O'Neill should not become England's new boss.

The Football Association is believed to have a shortlist of three or four names to succeed Sven-Goran Eriksson - and O'Neill is thought to be a candidate.

But former England captain Robson told BBC Sport: "I would like to see an Englishman back in the job."

Robson added that this view would obviously rule out Northern Irishman O'Neill "as far as I'm concerned".

Robson stated: "Bobby Robson went to the semi-finals of the World Cup in 1990 and Terry Venables reached the semi-finals of the European Championships in 1996.

"So the English managers have proved they can do the job and do it very well.

"I feel there are enough good coaches to handle the top players in the country.

"I would like it to be an English manager."
