FA identifies new EPL replacement if Southgate resigns as England manager. In the event that Gareth Southgate steps down from his position as manager of England, the English Football Association (FA) will take Brendan Rodgers, the head coach of Leicester City, into consideration.
If current England head coach Southgate decides to step down as manager, Rodgers has reportedly emerged as a potential option on the FA’s radar, according to the Mirror.
In the event that Southgate decides to resign, the FA has also investigated alternative choices, according to the article, although Chief Executive Mark Bullingham is aware of the restricted pool of candidates available.
This comes after the Three Lions were knocked out of the quarterfinal of the 2022 FIFA World Cup last weekend.
Recall that captain Harry Kane missed a penalty during England’s 2-1 loss to France in the World Cup quarterfinals.
Southgate is now giving his future with England some thought.
The 52-year-old, who guided England to the Euro 2020 finals, has had a difficult past 18 months and has not yet made up his decision.
