50-year-old manager has emerged as the favourite to replace Gareth Southgate

Posted by

The European Championship this summer could be Gareth Southgate’s last tournament in charge of the Three Lions.

The England boss has faced severe criticism for his team’s performances in the competition so far.

The Three Lions have managed to win just one game at Euro 2024, against Serbia, while they have played draws against Denmark and Slovenia.

More than the results, their performances have been disappointing, forcing fans and ex-players to criticise.

However, according to a latest report, the FA have already made a plan to replace Southgate if he leaves.

According to talkSPORT, Lee Carsley is in contention to replace Southgate as the England boss.

Southgate has hinted that he may leave the England job after the competition of Euro 2024 and FA have made the contingency plan already.

After leading the under-21s to Euro triumph last summer and declining the position of the Republic of Ireland, Carsley is highly-regarded.

The 50-year-old has previously turned down a number of opportunities and is well-liked throughout Europe.

Euro 2024 could be Gareth Southgate’s last competition as England manager.

The FA prefers to hire homegrown talent, so other options would include Newcastle boss Eddie Howe and Graham Potter.

The FA want Southgate to lead the team to the 2026 World Cup but it is looking highly unlikely considering the way things are going.

With every passing week, the pressure is increasing on the manager and the performances in this tournament will determine the future of the England boss.

England need an attacking manager

Considering how England have played, it feels like a change is needed and someone who plays attacking football should get the job.

The England squad is filled with world class players who have still not reached their full potential under Southgate.

A new manager, with a fresh approach, who can allow the players to fully express themselves will be beneficial for the team moving forward.

  1. Another noone without experience at the top. As long as he’s good with the press and maintains their image the FA don’t care.

  2. Under Southgate made England most boring team to watch to negative also reluctant to change things bringing subs on 5 mins to go needs to go need a manger new ideas and attackin football ⚽ sorry for fans who pay lot of money we definitely got talent in the team

  3. England does not need an attacking manager. They need a winning manager. Those two are not the same. Southgate for all his faults, is the best manager fir England since 1966.

  4. Southgate has run his race. Time for change. This tournament is proving that GS is no longer able to analyse a game he’s watching. A blind man in the dark can see his team selection doesn’t work, yet he’ll pick the same team (barring Mainoo) against Slovakia this evening.

    Another wasted tournament.
