Gareth Southgate urged to retain England managerial position amidst surging exit speculation

Gareth Southgate has been asked to stay in charge of the England national team and emulate Sir Alex Ferguson.

The fallout from England’s heartbreaking World Cup exit persists as rumors over Gareth Southgate’s future as manager for the following competition heat up.

Teddy Sheringham, a former striker for Manchester United, has stated that if Southgate wants to finally put an end to England’s protracted wait for a major victory, he could draw inspiration from some aspects of Ferguson’s famous tenure at Old Trafford.

Following their recent World Cup loss at the hands of France, the Three Lions are still in shock.

After several strong group-stage showings and a convincing victory over Senegal in the round of 16, England had great expectations for their tournament in Qatar.

However, their journey was cut short by a contentious loss to Les Bleus. Before Harry Kane missed a late penalty, Southgate’s team was on the wrong end of some dubious rulings.

The defeat has generated a lot of talk regarding Southgate’s future in the position of England manager, and even the manager admits he has a lot to consider.

Southgate said to reporters following the game: “You need time to choose wisely whenever you end these tournaments.

You experience a wide range of emotions, and these competitions demand a tremendous amount of energy. I want to make the best choice for the squad, whatever that may be.”

Although it doesn’t seem like Southgate is convinced he will stay, if Sheringham has his way, the Three Lions manager will announce he won’t be leaving.

“It shouldn’t be his final tournament, in my opinion, and I don’t see any reason why it should be. The only way it could end, in my opinion, is if Southgate makes the decision to go on.

In any case, he did a fantastic job, so I hope this isn’t his final match,” the player, formerly of United remarked.

Sheringham continued by saying that he would like to see Southgate given the opportunity to create a dynasty akin to Ferguson’s, but that he will need time to do it.

He continued, “For however many years Sir Alex was in control of Manchester United, everything just rolled on.

Senior players retired; young players aged and passed on their wisdom and positive energy to the following generation, and so on.

If England continues to perform well in key tournaments, then long may that continue. That kind of stability simply makes things a lot simpler to stay at the top.”
