- Manager’s current deal runs until December 2024
- England prepare to host Germany in Nations League
Gareth Southgate has admitted that having two years left on his contract will not protect him from the sack if England flop at the World Cup this winter.
Southgate, whose deal runs until December 2024 and takes in that year’s European Championship, is under growing pressure before England close their disastrous Nations League campaign by hosting Germany at Wembley on Monday evening. The manager was booed by his own supporters after his side’s 1-0 defeat against Italy in Milan last Friday, a result that relegated the Euro 2020 finalists to the second tier of the Nations League, and the 52-year-old knows his future could depend on what happens in Qatar this winter.
