“I’m the England manager,” Southgate stated during a press conference on Friday when questioned about the United links. “I’ve got one job, to try and deliver a European championship. Plus, Manchester United already have a manager, and it’s disrespectful to engage in speculation. Also, I am president of the LMA [League Managers Association]. I don’t have anything to add.”

Ratcliffe has expressed intentions to overhaul United’s management structure behind the scenes, emphasizing the need for organizational restructuring. He highlighted the importance of delineating roles such as coaching, recruitment, and strategy within the club’s hierarchy.

Dan Ashworth, currently on gardening leave from Newcastle United, is Ratcliffe’s preferred candidate for the role of United’s sporting director. Ashworth previously collaborated with Southgate during their time together at the FA.
