Qatar 2022: Southgate told to resign after England’s World Cup failure


Former Manchester City midfielder, Joey Barton, has suggested to England manager Gareth Southgate to resign following the Three Lions’ exit from the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

England were eliminated from the World Cup in the quarter-final after losing 2-1 to France over the weekend.

Southgate is England’s most successful manager since Sir Alf Ramsay, overseeing 52 wins, 15 defeats and as many draws.

However, Barton, who is coaching Bristol Rovers in EFL League 1, believes it is time for Southgate to leave his role as coach of England.

In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Monday, Barton said, “Can’t believe Southgate hasn’t resigned yet. That’s two World Cups and a home European Championship we could/should have won.

“Stop rewarding failure. Got to go. Time to hire somebody who can win.”
