London, Feb 11(ANI): Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has impishly called on the Football Association to persuade Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to take up the vacant England manager's job.
He said if he was in the FA's place, he would have considered Ferguson before anyone else since he is the most successful football manager in England.
"If I was the FA I'd be looking at the one who is the most successful, who has had the most successful results with British players since the Premier League started," The Telegraph quoted Dalglish, as saying.
Dalglish said if Ferguson refuses to accept, then the FA should consider the second-best and work their way through, before one of the most-awaited Premier League games of the season between United and Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.
"If he is not available they should go down the list from there. They should always start with the most successful and work their way through. You'd probably get a 'no', but you have to start from there," he said.
Tongue may have been firmly in cheek, but Dalglish has not joined the shout for an England-born manager, even though he believes experience of the English game is vital.
"I think it matters that they have an understanding of what they are going into and the mentality of the people they are going to manage, and not just the players but the country. You have to understand that but if they are getting results it doesn't really matter," he said.
Ferguson however, has laughed off suggestions of him taking up the England's manager job.
He said in a jest: "The FA have approached David Gill - I said I would let them know on April 1. I would do it. I would relegate them." (ANI)
