Gareth Southgate to decide England future after Euro 2024

Gareth Southgate has not ruled out staying as England manager beyond Euro 2024, with his contract set to end in months.

The 53-year-old Southgate was appointed as England boss in 2016. He has guided his country to the final of Euro 2020 and the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup. Southgate is under contract with the Football Association until December 2024.

After Thursday’s draw for the UEFA Nations League in Paris, Southgate said he is focused on the Euro 2024 in Germany and will consider his future only after the tournament.

“There’s a fair chance half the coaches won’t be here after the Euros. That’s international football,” Southgate said.

You’ve got to see how the summer goes — it’s as simple as that. I know what we’re capable of achieving in the summer. I know what my own benchmark of success would be, after that I’m not really thinking about anything else.

We’ve got to deliver a performance and you’ve got to make the best decisions for everybody. I won’t be in a position to make that decision before the tournament.”

England has been relegated to League B in the UEFA Nations League and is in a group with the Republic of Ireland, Finland, and Greece.

Southgate’s side will face Slovenia, Denmark, and Serbia in Group C of the Euros this summer.
