There can’t be too many people that would argue against Gareth Southgate being a brilliant appointment as England manager.
Ever since taking the reins of the national team, Southgate has seen a gradual improvement, and the Three Lions were a whisker away from European Championship glory under his tutelage last summer.
Clearly, the FA like what they see and have already offered Southgate a contract to take him right through to the 2024 Euros, however, that hasn’t sat well with talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan.
? “I’m not sure giving him a new contract is a necessity.”
? “If you’ve done well in the World Cup, then you get rewarded. But not now.”
