Domenech isn't convinced
Outspoken France coach Raymond Domenech on Thursday hit out at the decision to approve Italian Fabio Capello as the new England manager.
Domenech, 55, told French broadcaster RTL: "It's serious and a real shame for all the English managers.
"It's a shame to go looking for a Swede or an Italian. It is as if you are saying to the English coaches: 'You are in England, you are all rubbish and we are going to look elsewhere'."
The FA board on Thursday agreed that Capello should be named as the successor to Steve McClaren subject to the successful conclusion of contract negotiations, which will continue on Friday.
Capello's first game in charge will be a friendly against Switzerland at Wembley on February 6, with another friendly to follow against France in Paris on March 26.
