On the 17th October 2016 the Football governance in the UK was examined by parliamentary committee. During this session it was questioned whether it would be legal to advertise a person specification for the England role, in this case whether they could choose to employ someone of a particular nationality.
Can you say that being English is a necessity for the position of England manager? Or would this be unnecessary and therefore illegal to require this of candidates? Would this be a case of positive discrimination?
As readers of our blog we’d like to know your thoughts – how would you advertise for the role of England Manager?
