Next England manager: Who will ‘take over from Southgate’ when the time comes?



It remains an uncertain time in English and indeed world football. 

All action has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, with the Premier League not due to return until April 3 at the very earliest.

This season’s Champions League and Europa League campaigns are also facing an uncertain future. UEFA are yet to make a decision on the European competitions.

But one tournament that has already been considered is Euro 2020. Nations were set to come together this summer in a bid to be crowned European champion. But it looks like 2021 when the prestigious competition will take place.

The decision will certainly have an impact on the England National Team. Manager Gareth Southgate had been carefully planning his final squad for the competition and indeed some preparation friendlies.

But the games against Italy, Denmark, Austria and Romania have all been cancelled. As have the group matches with Czech Republic, Croatia and the winner of play-off C.

Had the country been successful, it would have represented a major step forward in Southgate’s management career. He looks set to stay in charge for Euro 2021 and potentially beyond. But who will take over once his reign has finished?

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is currently favourite to replace Southgate at 3/1. 

Also in contention is Brighton manager Graeme Potter at 7/1.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Burnley boss Sean Dyche are both available at 10/1. And it’s 12/1 for either Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard to take over from the current England coach.

England women’s boss Phil Neville is available at 14/1 to make the switch to the men’s setup next. And the trio of Brendan Rodgers, Aidy Boothroyd and Dean Smith are currently 16/1.

Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder and Tottenham Hotspur’s Jose Mourinho are both available at 20/1. It’s 25/1 for either Rafa Benitez or Gary Neville to take over from Southgate.

David Beckham is currently 33/1, with world-renowned managers Zinedine Zidane, Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino all available at 40/1.

West Ham boss David Moyes and former Brighton man Chris Hughton are 50/1. It’s also currently 50/1 for Roy Hodgson to return to the England dugout.

Pep Guardiola is an outsider to take over the role at 55/1, with Steve Bruce available at 75/1.

Also currently 75/1 are former England internationals Michael Owen and Rio Ferdinand. And it’s 80/1 for Sol Campbell, Alan Pardew or Alan Shearer to step up to the task next.
