Martin Glenn: 'England manager salary to be based on team performance'

One of the men tasked with finding Roy Hodgson's successor, FA chief Martin Glenn, admits that England have been "naive" in the past regarding managers' salaries.

Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn has revealed that the new boss of England will be paid a salary based purely on results.

The Three Lions are searching for a new head coach following the departure of Roy Hodgson last week, with a three-man panel - including Glenn - tasked with finding the right man.

Glenn admits that England have been "naive" in the past when paying managers high wages and will therefore take a new ­incentive-driven route based on team performance.

"To start off, it has to be results-orientated," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "The argument against Sven and Fabio in the past was that it wasn't benchmarked. We were just naive.

"What are benchmark earnings for top-quality football management? I think you have to look at it in that way. So, to get a really good person and they are earning £4m in a club, you have to be in that zone.

"We need to be in the zone of what the world champions [Germany] are paying and, competitively, how to make it attractive to someone. We are going into the market and you've got to pay a market attractive rate, but no one wants to be naive."

United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann is the current favourite to succeed Hodgson, while former skipper Steven Gerrard has also reportedly been offered a job as part of the backroom staff.
