Arsenal legend Perry Groves has suggested that Ange Postecoglou should be in consideration for the England job.

Even though Gareth Southgate’s record as England boss has been excellent, particularly in major tournaments, the Three Lions have not managed to cross the line and win silverware, with the pressure now seemingly mounting on the 53-year-old.

His selection decisions are being widely scrutinised, with many in the media already discussing who could replace him in the hot seat.

Sky Sports reported last week that the FA are lining up Pep Guardiola for the England job after next summer’s European Championship while some pundits have suggested that Jurgen Klopp could become a candidate for the role (talkSPORT).

Could Postecoglou manage England one day?

Groves has now thrown Postecoglou’s name into the hat for the job, even though the Australian only took over at Spurs this summer. The Gunners legend insisted that elite managers will be interested in the England job, given the quality of players current in the Three Lions set-up.

Groves has told talkSPORT (10/09/23): “I think these are elite players at England. So, I think the elite managers would be interested in taking this job. What about Ange Postecoglou? Would he get a better tune out of these players?”

Spurs Web Opinion

The best managers in the world are unlikely to consider managing international teams over club sides.

England will either have to look at second-tier managers such as Graham Potter or Eddie Howe (who I believe could lose his job at Newcastle this season) or managers who are in the twilight of their careers.
