Gareth Southgate on Manchester United’s managerial shortlist



Gareth Southgate is under consideration to be the next permanent manager of Manchester United, according to Sky sources.

United, who face Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday, have not made contact with the FA at this stage.

However, the England manager’s work with young players, style of play and ambassadorial qualities have made him a candidate.
