They can’t give it away: Favourite Gareth Southgate 'does not want England job' - report
The current Under-21 manager remains tipped by bookmakers to succeed Roy Hodgson following Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Iceland
Gareth Southgate, the bookmakers’ favourite to be the new England manager, does not want the job either on a temporary or permanent basis, the BBC reported on Thursday.
England’s Under-21 manager had been widely tipped to take over on a temporary basis while the Football Association conducts a review of England’s failure at Euro 2016 and looks for a permanent successor to Roy Hodgson, who quit on Monday.
But the BBC said the England job “is not what Southgate wants at this stage” either on a permanent or temporary basis.

Southgate, however, remains favourite at 5-1 with bookmakers William Hill. Former England coach Glenn Hoddle is 11/2 with US coach Juergen Klinsmann at 7/1, coming in from 25/1. Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger is 12/1.
England went out of Euro 2016 in the last 16 after a 2-1 defeat by Iceland.
