Shane Warne to coach England's cricket team? England's soccer manager Roy Hodgson is as likely to be offered the job as Warne, according to London's Tele-graph newspaper.
While Warne suggested on Twitter on Monday that he had some interest in the job, the Telegraph wrote: "Dubbed the greatest captain Australia never had, there are few figures in the game who command the same level of respect or possess as sharp a cricketing brain as Shane Warne. That said, it's more likely that Warne would return to playing in the Australia Test side for the next Ashes . . ."
The newspaper added: "Warne can think all he likes; Roy Hodgson is as likely to be offered the job."
But while the Tele-graph dismissed Warne as an option, the newspaper's online poll had Warne second favourite among six options – behind South African Gary Kirsten, who has since suggested his strong reluctance because of the amount of time he would need to spend away from home.
The story Shane Warne for England? Not likely, says British press first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.
