Mauricio Pochettino, on the other hand, is free after being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last season. The manager has a strong affirmation for the English job after coaching Tottenham and Southampton over the years with excellent records. 

The manager’s style of play is similar to Southgate’s, and he has developed different young players, with Dele Alli coming through his tutelage.

The manager will work with his former striker, Harry Kane, who will be happy to work with him. However, his failure to win trophies with Tottenham will be a problem for the English FA.

Meanwhile, many players have backed Southgate and want him to continue with the squad. If he doesn’t quit, he is likely to take the team to Euro 2024. The manager is eager to succeed but needs to be fair in his selections.

Why England should go for Thomas Tuchel instead of Mauricio Pochettino

Tuchel is a manager who motivates his players on and off the pitch; he is capable of delivering and has a greater winning rate than Pochettino. Even at Paris Saint-Germain, he was able to manage big-name players like Neymar and Mbappe.
