"With the England setup it's an even keel for everyone," Kirkland told Sky Sports News.
"I'm sure he'll be watching a lot of games and he will have people watching a lot of games. I'm sure he already knows a lot about the English game.
"But it's a chance, not just for me but for a lot of players, to have the chance to break through.
"I'd love to get back in the England setup. I've not been in for a while.
"The most important thing for me is to play a full season in the Premiership.
I've not done it since I've started playing football, I've always missed the tail-end of the season.
"I would take playing a full season and Wigan staying up this season."
