Sven-Goran Eriksson backs Mauricio Pochettino as England’s next ideal manager to replace Gareth Southgate

The Swede, 74, doesn’t believe the FA will want to hire a non-England boss but a lack of alternative candidates could force his hand towards the ‘fantastic’ ex-Tottenham manager.

“I could imagine Mauricio Pochettino as England manager,” he told OLBG.

“When he was with Tottenham he did a great job, I still don’t understand why he was sacked. The football his players play under him is also fantastic.

“Gareth Southgate will have a big decision in his hands, he will feel if the FA and more importantly the players are behind him. If you don’t have player support, it’s a very difficult situation.

“Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel are two very good names, but I hope England keep Southgate for another two years, why not keep him?

“England will always want an English manager in charge, it’s in his blood. We foreign managers who have held this position have always been criticized for not being English. If I was the FA, my number one priority one would be to keep Southgate, as I don’t know which English manager would be available to take over.

Southgate are set to review their future after the Three Lions were knocked out of the World Cup quarter-finals by defending champions France. During the tournament, Argentine coach Pochettino declared his interest in the role.

“Of course my relationship with England has always been very good,” he told The Athletic.

“We have a very good relationship with the academies, trying to develop young players for the national team. I feel so comfortable here. You never know what’s going on. I’m open to anything.”
