Gareth Southgate clarifies Man Utd links



Gareth Southgate firmly denies engaging in discussions regarding the possibility of replacing Erik ten Hag as Manchester United’s manager this summer.

Amid Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s entry into his inaugural summer transfer window as co-owner, speculation swirls around Ten Hag’s potential departure following a disappointing season that threatens United’s lowest-ever Premier League finish under his stewardship.

Despite numerous reports touting Southgate as a prime candidate for the role, with some even suggesting he tops United’s wishlist, the England manager asserts his complete focus on the upcoming European Championships.

In a subsequent interview with the BBC, Southgate reiterated his detachment from the United links.

“It’s a non-issue for me, always has been,” he emphasized. “My priority is to deliver a triumphant campaign for England. That’s where my efforts lie.”

Southgate’s contract with England extends until the end of 2024, and reports suggest the English FA is eager to secure his services for an extended period. However, United might keep a watchful eye on any developments as they deliberate on Ten Hag’s fate this summer.
