Pep Guardiola has been linked to the Three Lions manager position during top-secret England manager interviews.

Pep Guardiola has been linked to the Three Lions manager position during top-secret England manager interviews.

After Euro 2024 in Germany the following summer, current England manager Gareth Southgate appears destined to step down, with Pep Guardiola reportedly in line to replace him, according to the FA

It’s impossible for Pep Guardiola to lead England players while wearing the Three Lions’ blazer, can it?

After Euro 2024 concludes next summer, the Football Association (FA) reportedly wants that to happen.

When his contract expires after the tournament in Germany, current manager Gareth Southgate is expected to leave his position.

However, Guardiola is under contract with Manchester City until 2025, and it would cost the FA a small fortune to obtain an early release from the treble winners.

It’s also debatable whether the Catalan would prefer the international stage to his position at Europe’s most powerful club.

Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, and Graham Potter, the former manager of Chelsea, have both been mentioned.

But given that the FA has a history of holding private meetings, not all candidates will be made public. Mirror Football has examined some of the most notorious candidate sagas.

Curbishley misses the interview and the job in England.

When Charlton was first promoted to the top division in 2006, Alan Curbishley was regarded highly by his Premier League teammates.

Because Sven Goran Eriksson was expected to leave, it came as little surprise that he was a candidate for the England position.

However, his own interview process didn’t go as smoothly as expected.

He later admitted, in an interview with a Paddy Power podcast, “There was definitely Sam Allardyce and obviously Steve McClaren and myself.”.

“Martin O’Neill, I believe, participated in the interviews, and I believe Luiz Felipe Scolari was in it somewhere.

They wanted to interview us during the season at a secret location on a Tuesday or something, but I was unable to attend because of an FA Cup replay.

It ended up going to Steve McClaren, which I thought would happen because he had worked with Sven and was familiar with the setup, so I missed that one and I believe my interview at the FA was hurriedly set up.”.

Big Sam’s PowerPoint presentation is unsuccessful.

He implied that Curbishley wasn’t the only boss who had been passed over, but Allardyce was certain that his work at Bolton would get him hired.

And “Big Sam” made the decision to go all-out when it “became apparent they were positively encouraging English candidates to throw their hats in the ring.”.

He told The Sun, “I wanted to do a real knock-your-socks-off interview for the FA, so I put together a PowerPoint which looked at every single detail.

No items were missing.

Nobody but nobody was going to succeed in doing so.

The chief executive, Brian Barwick, later informed me that there were no PowerPoint facilities at the interview location, so I had to print hard copies for the panel.

That was the progressive FA, I guess.”.

The message seemed to have been received by Allardyce a decade later. He probably wished there were no facilities there at that time as well.

‘Special One’ rejects FA.

In 2007, Jose Mourinho was still at the top of his mischievous game, and claims that he turned down the England job before Fabio Capello was hired did not sit well with the Italian coach or the FA.

After being “disrespected” by Gareth Southgate, Rio Ferdinand tells England’s players to STOP playing.

With a subtle jab at his former teammate, Neymar shows that the rivalry with Kylian Mbappe is still going strong.

Rats and mice can’t stand sharp scents, so use a natural household item that costs only 29p to deter them.

The “silent alarm” of dementia may be a subtle change in sleep patterns.

The former vehemently denied that the “Special One” had been approached, but the former Chelsea player then shot back in the press through a spokesperson: “The FA’s statement is not true,” his representative said, according to the Daily Star.

Earlier than Capello, he received the job offer.

The FA, Jose, and Jorge Mendes, his agent, met with each other in London.

The FA and Mendes had a lot of conversation.

Jose developed a project for the World Cup and created a dossier for the FA outlining the changes England needed to make. Jose was in Portugal when the deal was presented.'”.

The identity of Allardyce’s rival is unknown.

When Allardyce did finally land the position he so desperately wanted in 2016, it was only after Steve Bruce and Arsene Wenger both declined to speak with the FA.

However, the name of the other contender was a mystery up until this point.

The FA search wasn’t as simple as they claimed, according to The Daily Telegraph, and another candidate—possibly a foreigner—was also approached and taken into consideration.

Southgate leads a five-person panel.

Gareth Southgate, the manager of the Under 21s, took over after Allardyce hung up his apron, but the FA was obviously not taking any chances during the interview process.

Martin Glenn, Greg Clarke, Dan Ashworth, Howard Wilkinson, the chairman of the League Managers’ Association, and Graham Le Saux, a former member of England’s international team, made up the five-person committee that the current manager of the team had to deal with.

He also publicly urged the FA to consider other candidates, which is to his credit.

Young coaches frequently do not have opportunities because club appointments frequently do not include interviews, according to him.

“It would be hypocritical of me to argue that the FA shouldn’t go through that process because people often appoint managers without first researching the options.”.

Southgate’s successor appears to be in high demand right now.

As a result, Guardiola would be wise to call ahead and inquire about any available PowerPoint facilities if he were at all interested.
