England could consider Wiegman after Southgate, FA confirms

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham says Lionesses coach Sarina Wiegman could take over men’s team after Gareth Southgate’s departure.

The Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman was appointed as England’s women’s team in 2021. She led them to the Euro 2022, and now they have reached the World Cup final.

Ahead of Sunday’s final against Spain, Mark Bullingham said the FA will consider Sarina Wiegman as a candidate to take charge of the senior men’s team manager next summer.

Bullingham said on Thursday: “People always say it is the best man for the job or the best Englishman. Why does it have to be a man? I think our answer is always: ‘It’s the best person for the job.’ We think Sarina is doing a great job and hope she continues doing it for a long time. I think Sarina could do anything she wants in football.

Wiegman also guided her country to the World Cup final in 2019, but they lost against the United States. England has only lost once in 38 matches under her.
