Southgate Leaves Future As England Manager Open, Performance not Sole Factor
Gareth Southgate, the manager of the England national football team, has sparked speculation about his future as he hints at a decision not to be taken until after the Euro 2024. He conveyed that his future depends not only on the team's performance but on several aspects, keeping his possible return open.

Relayed during England’s Nations League draw, Southgate insisted his focal point remains preparing a triumphant campaign. When asked directly regarding his future, Southgate decided to leave that decision until after observing how the summer proceeds. He highlighted that all his attention is centered on leading to the best possible tournament for this summer end.

Rather than confirming if the Euro 2024 outcome would influence his decision, Southgate highlighted Jude Bellingham's significant contribution at Real Madrid. Apart from his reflections on Bellingham, Southgate also expressed that Kobbie Mainoo from Manchester United captured his attention, hinting that he might be under consideration leading to the Euros. Amid all the speculation, Southgate further mentioned his focus on various aspects of players, including issues off the pitch.

Showing warmth towards Jordan Henderson's move from the Saudi Pro League to Ajax, Southgate praised Ajax's warm reception towards Henderson. In light of the UEFA Nations League draw, Southgate also addressed Jack Grealish and Declan Rice's potential criticism due to their past connections with Ireland. Southgate appreciated Rice's substantial contributions over the last four years, suggesting he had been invaluable to the team.
