The 40-year-old has tabled a 10-point manifesto aimed at overhauling a players’ union he considers to be ‘deeply out of touch’.
But former England boss Sam Allardyce believes Kitson would be in for a surprise if he were to land the role.
Speaking to TalkSport, Allardyce said: ‘I listened to Mr Kitson yesterday and I was pretty embarrassed by what he was saying,” Allardyce said.
‘I know that it’s not as good as it used to be due to restrictions placed on him by football, but Taylor has been responsible for many great things over his time.
‘Whoever replaces him will not realise what a difficult job they’ve got. They will be terrified when they sit in his position and try to do what he does.
‘They think they can do it, but believe you me, when they get into that job they’ll be thinking, ‘My god, I didn’t realise it was like this’.
‘Whether Mr Kitson is clever enough or intelligent enough to deal with all the pressures that come with the FA, I feel that might be a little difficult.
‘To tout himself for the position publicly was wrong.’
