Arsene Wenger has backed Gareth Southgate for the England job!
Despite Southgate’s slow start as boss against Malta, and ruling over the Three Lions bore draw on Tuesday, Wenger thinks he’s the right man for the position.
It’s a strange one, as those of you with your ear to the ground will remember, Wenger was once a front runner for the position!
He’s the man we all wanted!
We think it’s a horrible job to take on, but then again if he wins something he’ll become an instant England legend.

Wenger, for now, seems content to carry on managing Arsenal, but maybe he’s just waiting for the perfect opportunity to step into the job! Who knows?
Arsenal fans are divided on the subject – but there’s certainly a fair few who wouldn’t mind seeing the back of the Frenchman.
The England job may well provide the perfect solution, once Southgate eventually gets sacked of course…
