Gareth Southgate has certainly worked magic with an underdog England squad and defied the proverb “England never win” to take 4th place at the 2018 World Cup Russia. Meanwhile he has also received a Order of the British Empire (OBE) from the British goverment for his impeccable level of service to the English football team. Here’s a new development – the man himself is rumoured to take the throne at Old Trafford.
Upon being asked about the rumour by Sky sports, the England boss said “I’m the England manager and it’s a privileged position to be in.
“We’ve had the best year for 28 years and we’ve got a [Nations League] semi-final this summer and a European Championship [in 2020] that’s predominantly at Wembley, providing we take care of business to qualify.
“So, it’s a hugely exciting time with the team. I don’t think we’ve progressed as far as we can yet. I think there’s room for us to grow.
“I think there is a lot of importance in life about enjoying what you are doing.
“I am still a young coach, I’ve managed fewer than 200 matches, so, for me, it’s an honour to be in the role I’m in and I thoroughly enjoy it.”
