Hoddle tipped to be next Jamaica boss


September 8, 2006

LONDON (AFP) - Glenn Hoddle is being tipped as the man who will spearhead Jamaica's bid to reach the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

According to English media reports, Hoddle, 49, has become the front runner for the vacancy after Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to follow up an approach from the Jamaican FA.

Jose Pekerman, the manager of Argentina during this summer's World Cup, is also in the running but Hoddle was reported to be the favoured candidate as a English speaker based in Europe, where most Jamaican professionals play.

ADVERTISEMENTJamaica missed out on the last two World Cups after reaching the finals in France in 1998.

Former England boss Hoddle stepped down as manager of Wolves in July after one season in charge of the Championship club. He has also previously managed Swindon, Chelsea, Southampton and Tottenham.
