England manager Gareth Southgate is yet to decide his next move after Three Lions’ World Cup exit and speculation about his potential successor has begun.
The Euro 2020 runners-up made it as far at the quarter-finals, but were beaten by reigning champions France after Harry Kane missed a late penalty that could have taken the game to extra time.
Southgate’s deal runs until the end of Euro 2024, which would be his fourth major tournament in charge.
However, the 52-year-old has been open about the mental toll of elements of his time in charge – not least the backlash after a Nations League defeat against Hungary at Molineux over the summer.
According to The Sun, though, the FA wants a British coach to replace Southgate if the manager does decide to step down.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea successor at Stamford Bridge, Graham Potter, is among those reportedly in the frame, along with Newcastle boss Eddie Howe and former Chelsea coach Brendan Rodgers, who is in charge at Leicester.
