The FA want Southgate to remain in charge for the next major tournament, Euro 2024, but he is weighing up his options.

Former Chelsea and PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is one of the favourites to take over with the FA open to appointing a foreign boss.

The German is keen to take over and would likely have the backing of fans, according to a recent SunSport poll.

Tuchel, a Champions League-winning manager, came top of the poll with a 25 per cent share of the vote.

The next most popular choice was Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, who would be perfect for the job according to SunSport columnist Jack Wilshere.

Other less popular English options include Frank Lampard, who won 106 caps for England but had just eight per cent share of the vote.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter was even less popular with 7.7 per cent.

Mauricio Pochettino, who has been linked with a host of jobs over the last year, came in third.


The Argentine boasted 16 per cent of the vote and is actually the bookies’ favourite to succeed Southgate.

Some England fans did not like any of the options presented in the poll with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and Steve Cooper also mooted.
