The Three Lions boss will be in charge for Euro 2024. However, his future beyong that remains a mystery.

England manager Gareth Southgate has just made a huge admission regarding his future with the national team less than a week before the Three Lions kick off their Euro 2024 campaign.

The 2020 runners-up are one of the favorites to win this competition despite their frustrating 1-0 loss at home to Iceland recently. However, the England boss has been tipped to leave the national team after the summer tournament due to his contract situation and criticism from the fans.

Speaking to Bild ahead of their opener versus Serbia this Sunday, the 53-year-old all but confirmed the speculation, revealing he will likely step down as manager if his team fail to win the competition.

The former Middlesbrough boss has been in charge of the Three Lions since 2016, leading them to a FIFA World Cup semifinal and European Championship final at Wembley. However, Southgate has come under criticism for failing to get the team over the line.

His current contract expires in December and while the FA wish to extend this deal, Southgate could end his time with the Three Lions instead.

"If we don't win, I probably won't be here anymore," Southgate told 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."

Southgate reportedly came close to stepping down just over a year ago after Kane and Co. were eliminated from the 2022 FIFA World Cup by France in the quarterfinals. The manager ultimately stayed on to oversee one more competition but a final decision regarding his future will only be made after Euro 2024.

The Three Lions are seen as the second favorites to win the competition, behind only France. However, the 1966 FIFA World Cup winners face a tricky group as they will take on Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia in Group C.

Southgate has been heavily linked with the Manchester United job, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe reportedly being a huge fan of the Englishman. Only time will tell if the England boss will leave the national team for the Red Devils.
