Patrice Evra insists that Gareth Southgate is STILL ‘the future of England’

Posted by

Patrice Evra has insisted that England should hang on to Gareth Southgate.

England was eliminated from the World Cup semi-final last week, after losing 2-1 to France. As was expected, there have been plenty of people calling for Southgate to be sacked and a new manager to be brought in.

The current England manager has done extremely well but has not been able to get his team over the line.

But former Manchester United full-back Evra believes that he should stay and doesn’t understand how there is even a debate over it.

“This England squad is not better than the England squad when you had like Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and all of that.” Evra told Sky Sports.

“But they play as a team, and he built that.

“So that is why I don’t even understand why there is a debate. He should stay, or should he leave?

“Southgate should stay, Southgate is the future of England.

“But I sometimes think, with personal reasons, when you feel like you’re doing great, and you’re still being criticised, maybe some people from your family would say, ‘you know what? You need to retire’.”

Do you agree with Evra?
