England manager Gareth Southgate will not rush into signing a new contract with the Football Association despite them wanting to hand him a pay rise, according to The Times.
The Three Lions boss helped his team reach the World Cup semi-finals this year, only to see his team lose to Croatia, after extra-time.
It was a thrilling performance throughout the tournament from England, with striker Harry Kane claiming the tournament’s Golden Boot award for scoring six goals.
And the Football Association are keen to tie down Southgate, who reignited the country’s passion for international football, as they believe he could be tempted away for a role in the Premier League.
Southgate himself is reportedly unsure, especially with increased interest in his private life, but is currently set to lead England through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
