After the Three Lions’ poor performance in the UEFA Nations League, coach Gareth Southgate admits his “hot seat” in the England team is shaking violently.
England manager Gareth Southgate is under intense pressure from the media and fans after a string of five matches in which the “Three Lions” have failed to win. This is especially true given that his team has yet to score a goal. during the preceding 450 minutes.
Even though the FA is reluctant to make any changes after the World Cup in December, sources at Vn88CX are concerned that Southgate will leave regardless of England’s performance in Qatar.
The 52-year-old tactician signed a contract extension last year that will keep him in charge until after Euro 2024, but he acknowledges that his job security will depend on England’s performance at the 2022 World Cup in November.
“At the end of the day, my performance at the World Cup will be used to evaluate my career. Managers in football can sign deals lasting three, four, or five years, but that is not the deciding factor. If it isn’t satisfactory, you should still leave “Southgate, our coach, was generous.
“How come I’m not the same? I don’t have the conceit to believe my contract guarantees anything. I am very grateful for the FA’s backing. However, we are aware of the predicament’s gravity. Depending on the outcomes, a new status will be assigned.
What we do in Qatar will be used as a yardstick to evaluate me, and I have no problem with that. What matters is how you perform in your upcoming match or tournament, not your past accomplishments.”
In spite of this, journalist Ian Ladyman shared on Vn88.cx that the FA would be making a mistake by dismissing coach Gareth Southgate after all he has accomplished for the England team over the past six years.
“Southgate has led England to two consecutive finals at the European Championship and the World Cup, both of which they lost on penalties.
Under Southgate’s leadership, England went undefeated for an unprecedented 22 games. After years of underachievement in major tournaments, the Three Lions players shocked the world by beating Germany at Wembley last summer.
Six years is a long tenure for a coach of a national team. However, if Southgate begins to grow tired of it, he is not the only one who will be victimized. Though his 62% victory rate isn’t impressive, it’s higher than that of his predecessors “Ian Ladyman, a journalist, made this claim.
