England coach Gareth Southgate has dismissed rumors that he could take the helm of the English Premier League (EPL) Manchester United. He stressed that he would not decide where to go until the 2024 European Championship Euro 2024, which will take place this summer.

According to ESPN on the 23rd, Southgate expressed displeasure when asked, “Do you take the helm of Manchester United after finishing the England national team?”

“My only focus right now is to become a European champion,” Southgate said. “Why should I sign a contract before the Euro? I never did that. I will not talk to anyone.”

ESPN quoted a source as saying, “Southgate, who is under contract with the national team until December this year, hopes to stay until the 2026 North-Central America World Cup,” but added, “But he will not make a decision about his future until the Euro 2024 tournament ends this summer.”

Southgate, who took the helm of the England national team in 2016, has been relatively consistent in major tournaments.

He was the runner-up at Euro 2020, advanced to the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and ranked third in the UEFA Nations League in the 2018-19 season.

Southgate, who unfortunately missed his first-ever championship trophy after a penalty shootout against Italy in the Euro 2020 final, is aiming to win his first Euros this year.

Meanwhile, the English team will hold a friendly match with the Latin American powerhouse Brazil at Wembley Stadium in London on Monday. However, the head coach is agonizing over the issue as Harry Kane, Cole Palmer, and Jordan Henderson are suffering from string injuries recently.

While Kane’s physical condition is not yet clear, Southgate said Ollie Watkins and Ivan Toney are also considering the front line position.

“Both Watkins and Tony have good opportunities,” Southgate said. “They are doing well in their teams. They are all good players.” 안전 토토사이트
