Pearce takes temporary England charge

February 09, 2012 14:35:43 UK

The FA has confirmed England under-21 coach Stuart Pearce will take charge of the senior side for the friendly against Holland later this month.

The match on 29th February had been arranged as preparation for the European Championships in the summer. Pearce will now take temporary charge of the team following Fabio Capello's resignation as the FA begins the search for a new manager.

I have got great confidence in Stuart, we will be in good hands.

David Bernstein

Pearce, who served as Capello's assistant, is 21.00 to be the next permanent England boss while Harry Redknapp is at 6.50 and Roy Hodgson is at 1.12.

"I can announce that Stuart Pearce will manage the England team against Holland," FA chairman David Bernstein told a press conference on Thursday.

"He has huge experience outside and inside the organisation. He has been working with the under-21 team and has been working with Fabio for some time. I have got great confidence in Stuart, we will be in good hands.

"Our priority then will be to appoint a new England manager."

Meanwhile, Capello has broken his silence on his departure from the England set-up.

"I would like to thank all players, staff and Football Association for the professionalism they have shown during my years as manager of the English National Team," he said in a statement.

"A very special thanks to all the supporters: they've always supported the team and me in our job.

"I wish all of them every success in achieving all their sporting goals."

England are now 1213.00 to win Euro 2012, while Holland can be backed at 2223.00.
