share on:

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has called for the introduction of a “Rooney Rule” to allow home-grown managers the chance to compete with foreign imports in English football.

Allardyce will go head-to-head with one of the Premier League’s newest overseas recruits on Wednesday evening when German Jurgen Klopp brings his Liverpool side to the Stadium of Light, live on Sky Sports, on Wednesday.

Allardyce said: “The problem for me is we are denying British coaches positions in all divisions now, particularly in the top division and the Championship, and we need to do something about that.

“As a country, as the FA, as the Premier League, we need to protect the position of our own highly-qualified coaches who are not even getting an interview now.”
