England Fans Delighted as Gareth Southgate Rejects England Offer

England suffered another embarrassing night in a major tournament as Roy Hodgson’s men crashed out of Euro 2016 in the first knockout stage following a 2-1 defeat to minnows Iceland.

The former Liverpool and Fulham boss resigned from his post as manager of the national team immediately after the final whistle went and fans were delighted with the prospect of a new manager ahead of the World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign.

However, the first list of candidates drawn up by the bookmakers weren’t exactly jaw-dropping and under-21 coach Gareth Southgate was the leading favourite – much to the dissatisfaction of Three Lions supporters.

But reports emerging this evening claim that the former Middlesbrough boss has turned down the chance to replace Hodgson in the hot seat.

The 45-year-old was reported as saying that he has no interest in succeeding Hodgson and would be reluctant to consider accepting the post on an interim basis according to the Guardian – much to the delight of fans.

 

Is Southgate right to turn down the England job?
