Dario Gradi has said that he will go into his work on the FA Commission with an "open mind".
The former Crewe Alexandra manager has been chosen by FA chairman Greg Dyke to help with the commission's aim of developing English talent.
However, Gradi feels that it would be impossible for a team in the Premier League to name a side completely made up of academy players.
"We fielded a team completely made up of academy-raised players at Crewe last season. Of course, that would be great to see in the Premier League but it won't happen," he is quoted as saying by the Sunday Express.
"I'm going into the commission with an open mind. If they ask me how do you go about producing skilful players, I know what to say. I've been there and done it."
Gradi also says that introducing a quota to stipulate that a certain number of English players are in a team would be beneficial.
"From England's point of view you would improve the development if you had to have a certain amount of English players in a team," he continued.
"I don't know if the FA have the power to enforce that."
