Southgate likely to become permanent England manager

After Sam Allardyce’s departure, Gareth Southgate was given the responsibility of being the interim manager or caretaker of the England Football’s senior squad after building a strong youth setup on the National stage. Southgate was thrust into the senior job at the end of September and saw his side beat Malta and draw with Slovenia during his opening two matches last month.

Southgate will probably be appointed as the permanent manager unless of course they lose to Scotland in the International game. His next game will be against Spain and thereafter England will play again only in March. If Southgate manages to keep the team together and yeild fruitful results, then most probably will be appointed as the permanent manager.

  • England legend Frank Lampard backs this decision as he voiced out his support and is in favour of Southgate becoming the permanent manager.

    “He’s a gentleman, he’s a safe pair of hands – and that’s not patronising – his demeanour is safe. And what he’s done with the 21s there, I think he knows the role, he knows the FA, he’s been involved. We’ve got a lot of young players and I think he’ll do well. I’m really pleased it’s him.” said Lampard voicing his support towards Southgate.
