Former Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton has suggested to England manager Gareth Southgate that he resign following the Three Lions’ exit from the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
England was eliminated from the World Cup in the quarterfinals 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, “I can’t believe Southgate hasn’t resigned yet." That’s two World Cups and a home European Championship we could and should have won.
“Stop rewarding failure." got to go. "Time to hire somebody who can win.”
