Football: Former England manager Hoddle joins task force to improve English football
LONDON (AFP) - Football Association chairman Greg Dyke announced on Wednesday that former England manager Glenn Hoddle will be part of a commission investigating how to improve the fortunes of the national team.
Dyke revealed plans to set up the commission in a speech last month, when he referred to the "frightening trend" of English players being supplanted by foreigners in the Premier League.
Only around 30 per cent of the players currently playing in the English top flight are eligible for selection by England coach Roy Hodgson.
Dyke made the announcement at the Leaders in Football conference at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium in west London.
