Benitez critical of delay in appointing England coach

Former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez believes the Football Association will regret the delay should they appoint a new England coach before this summer's European Championships.

"I know that this is a problem," he said in relation to the search for Capello's successor.

"People say 'No, it's not important because you will have a friendly'.

"I think that it is important to know who is in charge and how he will prepare.

"He will see the players, he will talk to the players, he will be preparing mentally the players for the Euros.

"You have quality players, they have the potential, but you need an idea.

"If you have an idea, if you have a system, then they (the players) will follow the manager and they will have the belief - that is the key."
