Pep Guardiola on FA’s rader as England manager in 2024.

Pep Guardiola on FA’s rader as England manager in 2024.

Gareth Southgate’s replacement after Euro 2024 may be wooed by the FA in the form of Pep Guardiola.

If Gareth Southgate leaves after the Euros when his contract expires, the Football Association will be forced to find a new manager for the men’s England team.

Pep Guardiola is reportedly a candidate for the position of England manager after Gareth Southgate steps down, according to the Football Association (FA).

After the 2019 European Championships in Germany, Southgate, 53, is anticipated to leave his current position.

Since taking over as Three Lions manager in September 2016, the former defender has had great success, leading his team to the Euro 2020 final.

Guardiola, 52, is reportedly on the short list of replacements being created by FA officials.

Many critics consider the Spaniard to be the world’s best manager because he has three Champions League victories to his name.

Guardiola’s deal with Manchester City expires in June 2025, and there’s a chance he’ll be enticed away from the Etihad.

After dominating at the club level, he may be intrigued by playing on a global scale.

He has been in charge of City since July 2016.

According to the Daily Mail, Guardiola is the FA’s “dream” replacement for Southgate.

If Southgate leaves his position after the 2020 Euros, officials will look into the possibility of hiring the former Barcelona manager, but other coaches are also in the running.

Only Graham Potter is currently unattached, but Eddie Howe, Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers, and those two are thought to be popular with the FA.

Chelsea fired Potter earlier this year, and Pochettino now serves as manager at Stamford Bridge.

Howe is in charge of Newcastle, one of the richest clubs in the world, and Rodgers was recently reappointed by Celtic.

However, it would be challenging for any candidate to pass up the England position, which continues to be a very desirable position.

Pep Guardiola has previously stated a desire to work in global management.

Guardiola’s hiring would be a major victory for the FA, as they might not be able to match his City salary.

Sven-Goran Eriksson was hired by the FA in 2001, and Fabio Capello was hired by the FA seven years later, to manage England.

Guardiola, who has championships in Spain, Germany, and England, has previously made suggestions about managing abroad.

In 2021, he told reporters, “If the opportunity presents itself, the next step will be a national team.

After seven years at City, I must take a break,” he stated before reversing course. I should pause, take a closer look, pick the brains of other coaches, and then consider going down that road.

In the European Championship, Copa America, and World Cup, I would like to serve as the head coach.”.

In the event that no obvious candidate emerges, Southgate may continue leading England past the summer of 2019.

Because he is still well-liked by FA officials, the former Middlesbrough manager might agree to a new contract.
