FA could turn to Southgate


Gareth Southgate could take temporary charge of England while the Football Association search for Roy Hodgson's permanent successor.

Hodgson brought his four-year tenure to an end shortly after England's 2-1 defeat to Iceland ended their involvement in Euro 2016.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn has suggested the search for Hodgson's successor could take months and the governing body may have little choice but to appoint an interim manager for England's 2018 World Cup qualifying opener against Slovakia on September 4.

"We'd like to get one (a new manager) for the first World Cup qualifier, but if we won't we have an interim plan in mind," Glenn explained when asked about a possible timescale.

"We are not talking about names today, but it would be a pretty obvious one to pick.

"We just don't know yet who the runners and riders would be. We are going to scope out, which we start at the end of this week with (FA vice-chairman) David Gill and (technical director) Dan (Ashworth).

"It is - what's the problem we need to solve?

"We clearly need an inspirational manager who can harness all of the resources that the English game, the big resources, has got, everything we have now got at St George's Park, to make us more resilient in tournaments.

"That I think is a brief, but we want to work that through, but it is an inspirational manager and management team to get the best out of a squad which has got high potential."
