England manager Roy Hodgson’s contract will be expiring at the end of the Euro 2016 campaign and the coach has already stated his stand that he will not beg to stay in the job if the FA does not want him to carry on.
The Three Lions, under his leadership have been unconvincing so far in the tournament and with the FA declaring that his deal will be reviewed based on the tournament, Roy knows his script could turn bad if the team loses to Iceland in the last 16 tie on Monday 27 June.
The former Liverpool manager has defended his record in the England job and believes he is developing a great team and would like to continue but that will be based on chances at the Euro and the FA assessment.
“I’m prepared to carry on. It is different to wanting it. I’m prepared to carry on if the FA want me to. If they don’t want me to [continue], then my contract will have run out and that is how that will be, so I’m not begging for the job.
“I believe in what I’ve done, in particular over the last couple of years.
“I believe in the team I am working with and believe the team is showing such potential that it will go on to do good things and if the FA want me to continue with me looking after them, I will be happy to do so.” He said.
