David Moyes has revealed his fear for British managers and has called for patience from clubs.
The former Manchester United boss was sacked by the Old Trafford hierarchy after a disappointing first season and was given the sack in April.
Moyes then stated that he hoped British managers would get the opportunity to manage the top clubs in the Premier League.
"To do a top job, I believe you have to earn your stripes," Moyes told several national newspapers.
"The route through to the top for a British manager is a long process and maybe having a job abroad and getting recognised for your work there, might be the way in the future."
“But I hope I won't be the last one to be given a chance to manage one of the top ones."
The former Everton boss then praised Brendan Rodgers for the job he has done at Liverpool and said it was because he was given time to do his job.
Brendan has come in and with the time he's been given has been able to turn round Liverpool and I think it's really important for British mangers that he's done that," Moyes added.
"Brendan was given the opportunity and because of that Liverpool have a good future. Tony Pulis also showed what our managers can do (having rescued Crystal Palace from relegation danger). I hope I'm not the end of British managers getting opportunities at the top."
