It has been reported that the FA have earmarked Pep Guardiola as their ideal successor to Gareth Southgate for the England job after Euro 2024.
This comes from the Daily Mail, as the two-time treble-winner’s contract at Manchester City runs out in 2025.
As a result, Pep Guardiola is being sized up for the England job to come in and replace Gareth Southgate.
England targeting Pep Guardiola as ‘dream appointment’ to replace Gareth Southgate
As Fabio Capello rightly pointed out, the Spaniard is a special coach as he has a tendency to find tactical solutions out of nowhere on a consistent basis, which would prove to be a huge bonus in international football.

Now, it has indeed been revealed with Gareth Southgate potentially looking to leave the England job after Euro 2024, some members of the the FA view Pep Guardiola as the ‘dream appointment’ to replace him.
