Southgate suggests he's set to QUIT as England boss if they don't win the Euros

Gareth Southgate has suggested that he could 'step down' as England manager if the Three Lions do not win Euro 2024 this summer.

The 53-year-old's England contract will expire in December, but the Football Association (FA) are keen for Southgate to stay on as England boss.

The Three Lions arrived in Germany on Monday ahead of the tournament, with this potentially being the England manager's last major tournament in charge.

But the FA want to extend his contract until the 2026 World Cup and Southgate has previously hinted that he could be tempted to stay on past Euro 2024, despite being linked to take over from Erik ten Hag as the next Manchester United manager.

'If we don't win, I probably won't be here anymore,' Southgate said to German outlet BILD.

'So maybe it is the last chance. I think around half the national coaches leave after a tournament – that's the nature of international football.

'I've been here almost eight years now and we've come close. You can't constantly put yourself in front of the public and say, "A little more please," as at some point people lose faith.

'If we want to be a great team and I want to be a top coach, you must deliver in big moments.'
