THE Football Association will look to appoint an English successor when Fabio Capello's reign ends, according to Sir Trevor Brooking.
Brooking, the FA's director of football development, will work closely with the Italian in a bid to boost the skills of homegrown coaches in the coming years and the 61-year-old is hopeful that will lead to an end to imported bosses.
Capello is the second foreign-born coach employed by the FA, after Sven-Goran Eriksson.
Eriksson's departure in 2006 led to the appointment of Steve McClaren, who had worked as the Swede's assistant alongside his day job as Middlesbrough boss, but he was sacked after failing to qualify for Euro 2008.
Despite that, Brooking is still eager to recruit and groom English coaches in the future.
"I think longer term, after Fabio, we'd like to go English," the FA's director of football development told BBC Radio 5 live.
"We want to create a spell where we appoint English coaches and Fabio can help us enormously to bridge that gap and help that transition.
"We've got a short-term priority of the qualifying games but over the next couple of years the National Football Centre will hopefully be built, and that's going to be the hub site for the future development of English coaches."
Brooking, who was a key member of the FA group that opted to retain the services of Capello when his future was in doubt, said the former AC Milan and Real Madrid coach was as disappointed as everyone else after England's 4-1 humbling at the hands of Germany in the second round of the World Cup.
"We were all stunned at how poor we were," said Brooking.
"We reflected on it, as he did. From a pride point of view he was hugely disappointed - but he wanted to try to do better and help rebuild."
Despite talking positively about the key results from the post-World Cup review process, Brooking also suggested the current economic climate would not make things easy to improve in the immediate future.
"It's important to have someone experienced in now for the next couple of years because the next two, four, six years are going to be a challenge for whoever's managing the team.
"The review, I'm hoping, is to look at budgets because the shame is that we're doing this at a time which is tough for the FA from an economic point of view.
"I accept that the financial environment is tough, but there's no doubt that Spain, Germany and Holland - who were the three European semi-finalists at the World Cup - invested in coaching and player development as a priority in the last decade, and they are probably reaping the benefits now."
