Bournemouth boss Howe: English managers must prove good enough for Premier League

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says English managers need to prove themselves to be good enough for the Premier League.

England manager Sam Allardyce has said it could soon have no English bosses.

Howe, one of the league's seven British bosses, says he is "in favour of the best person" regardless of nationality.

"I have no problem with the fact that the Premier League doesn't have as many English, or British, managers as it should," the 38-year-old told BBC TV's The Premier League Show.

"I think we [Britons] have to prove we're good enough for those jobs."
