Southgate's Final Stand?

As England Prepares to Battle Serbia, FA Addresses Future Succession Plans

Gareth Southgate, who has led England since 2016 following Sam Allardyce's resignation, has yet to secure a major trophy despite notable progress. Under his leadership, England reached the final of


2020 and the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup. The team now gears up to start their Euro 2024 campaign against Serbia on June 16 at Arena AufSchalke.

FA Chief Executive Mark Bullingham recently addressed the media about the future leadership of the national team. Bullingham emphasized that, like any organization, the FA has a succession plan for top positions, ensuring continuity and preparedness for various scenarios. However, he clarified that no discussions have taken place with potential replacements for Southgate.

When asked about the possibility of appointing a non-English manager, Bullingham referenced Sarina Wiegman, the Dutch head coach of the England women's team. He noted the importance of having a diverse pool of elite players and managers for any football federation.

As England prepares for the European Championship, this tournament could be a pivotal moment for Southgate, potentially marking his last opportunity to lead the Three Lions to victory and secure his legacy as England's manager.
