Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew wants to manage England, but does not believe now is the right time to take the role as he has penned a new deal at Selhurst Park.
“I want to be the England manager. It is a job I aspire to and it is an ambition of mine. But not now,” he wrote in the Daily Mail.
“I have signed a new contract [at Crystal Palace], we have new, ambitious American investors and with my chairman Steve Parish we all want to attack this division.
“I do hope the Football Association will want to talk and I have strong opinions on England, but I have been asked if I want the England job and I have given my answer.

“It might be that I am considered too inexperienced at international level so I am prepared to work for another nation to get that experience when the time is right, if that is what is required. But for now my time is at Crystal Palace.”
