Stan Collymore has told Boylesports that he would like to see West Ham United’s Slaven Bilic become the next England manager.

The Three Lions are looking for a new boss, following Roy Hodgson’s resignation last night.

Hodgson stood down as England boss following the Three Lions’ disastrous 2-1 defeat against Iceland in the last 16 of Euro 2016.

There are a great list of names being touted as potential choices to replace Hodgson, but Collymore wants Bilic to take over.

"Slaven Bilic – Knows the country, knows international management, with an attractive style of play. Plus he’s a massive anglophile who knows what we expect from the players," Collymore wrote.

Another name said to be considered by England is Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce.

Allardyce has previously suggested that he would be open to taking the England job, but Collymore believes the experienced boss should be overlooked.

"Big Sam – Will want it, will be the most passionate manager we’ve had for a long time, but we need to embrace the new and brave, not old and stale," he added.

Other than Bilic and Allardyce, there are plenty of other potential names tipped by the bookies to become England manager.

Gareth Southgate is the current favourite to become the next Three Lions’ boss, with Glenn Hoddle and Eddie Howe at slightly longer odds.
