- Manager hits back at ‘noise’ from critics of his playing style
- England to face Italy in front of 3,000 children at Molineux
Gareth Southgate says he will “not outstay my welcome” as England manager, and has suggested he would leave if he felt the players were not responding to his methods.
There have been calls for Southgate to adopt a more attacking approach, with clamour growing for Jack Grealish’s inclusion as a starter after his influential substitute performance in the draw with Germany. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s status has also come under scrutiny, with Gary Lineker among those to criticise the fact he was not used in Munich. Southgate batted away accusations that he is too conservative butaccepts his role has a shelf life.
