England international open to idea of running for Prime Minister in the future

Posted by

England international defender Tyrone Mings has suggested that he could one day run for Prime Minister.

Mings is the captain of Aston Villa and a regular in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. His credentials are pretty impressive, but we’re not sure it’s sufficient to take him all the way to 10 Downing Street.

He’s clearly as ambitious as he is tall, though, with Mings have told Goal during an exclusive interview “I might try to be Prime Minister” during a discussion about the prospect of life after football.

Mings was only joking – we think – but he appears to be completely against the idea of blindly following the path that is ordinarily mapped out for footballers. He’s not afraid to break the status quo.

“I am fairly open because retirement isn’t something that worries me. I don’t feel like I have to be shoehorned into a coaching role because it is all I know.”

Could Tyrone Mings have a future as a politician?

“It excites me thinking about what could come up post-football, but I am definitely not there yet.”

Not only is this one of the most talented England squads we’ve had in years, but many of the players are also keen on using their positions as a force for change in the country.

Mings is no exception to that. Whether we’ll be seeing him elected Prime Minister further down the line is another matter entirely, but we really wouldn’t rule anything out in this day and age…
