Paul Merson is unhappy about the lack of opportunities English managers get after Marco Silva was appointed Hull manager.
Merse was pressed on the subject on Soccer Special by Jeff Stelling and had a bee in his bonnet about the thought process behind picking the former Olympiakos manager as Hull's new main man.
The 39-year-old Portuguese has signed until the end of the season at the KCOM Stadium.
He replaces Mike Phelan who was sacked on Tuesday with the Tigers bottom of the Premier League.
"Why does it always have to be a foreign manager - I've got nothing against them, Klopp, Guardiola and Conte, they are all top managers," ranted Merson.
"Why is this geezer any different to Gary Rowett?
"Footballers spend four years doing their badges, spending a fortune and nobody gets a chance to manage at the top level."
The new Hull manager responded to Merson's claims by sending out his team to beat Swansea 2-0 in the FA Cup third round.
It's obviously early days, but maybe Merse will end up owing him an apology.
