Alan Shearer’s only management experience is taking over at Newcastle for eight games just before they were relegated in 2009.
Yet, he believes he is the man for the job, based on his experience as a player where he was once captain.
In fact he even applied for the job in the past.
“I went to see the FA about four or five years ago and said I wanted the job,” Shearer told the BBC.
“They just looked at me and said ‘No, it’s a lack of experience’. I said: ‘well, you’ve hired experience, you pay them an absolute fortune, I could not have done any worse than those guys’.
Now, Shearer wants to go back and apply, after Roy Hodgson quit following an embarrassing exit to the hands of Iceland in the Euro 2016 last 16 round.
“I would offer my services again, even if Gareth Southgate got the job.
“I would offer my experience of tournaments, for him to take players who have been there and done it has to be of benefit.”
