England national football coach Gareth Southgate confirmed he hasn’t received any offer that could make him quit England and return to club management.

Following a memorable 2018 World Cup outing, where he guarded the Three Lions to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, Southgate also had his team seal a spot in the inaugural Nations League Finals, that will be held in 2019.

The England boss has also been linked with the Manchester United job but he confirms he hasn’t been reached for the job.

“I think at the moment that’s very easy: I don’t have anything to consider,” he told Sky Sports via FourFourTwo when he was asked about possible interest from club teams.

“We’ve just had our best year in about the last 28 years, we’re in another semi-final next summer and I signed a new contract three months ago.

“I’m incredibly proud to be the England manager and I’ve the opportunity to lead England into a European Championship where so many of the matches are at Wembley, so for me it’s a very simple situation at the moment.”
