Is Gareth Southgate the Right Choice for Manchester United?


Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Gareth Southgate has emerged as the frontrunner to replace Erik ten Hag as the next manager of Manchester United. Many former and current players have voiced their support for the England national team coach. However, a closer look at Southgate’s Premier League stats raises some concerns.

As a Premier League manager, Southgate has a win percentage of 25.4%, which is worse than several other managers including Walter Mazzarri, Roy Keane, and Bryan Robson. His goals-per-game ratio of 1.01 and points-per-game record of 1.05 are also below average compared to other managers.

Out of the 121 managers who have been in charge of 50 or more games, Southgate ranks 100th for points-per-game. Among current Premier League managers, only Rob Edwards and Vincent Kompany have a lower career win percentage.

It is worth noting that Southgate has not managed at the club level in over 14 years, with his last stint ending in being sacked by Middlesbrough after relegation. His recent record as a Premier League manager is also concerning, with only two wins in his last 26 games.

Despite these statistics, Southgate has had some notable achievements, including winning the Premier League Manager of the Month award and completing doubles over four teams in a single season.

Ultimately, the decision of who will be the next manager of Manchester United rests with the club’s hierarchy. While Southgate may have his detractors, his experience with the England national team and his previous achievements cannot be ignored.
