Now, in a report from the Sun, it has been claimed that if INEOS are to appoint Southgate as the next Manchester United manager, then they will need to bring in his entire coaching staff alongside the 53-year-old.

This would mean Southgate’s assistant manager Steve Holland, as well as coaches Paul Nevin and Martyn Margetson, would need to be offered jobs at the club by Ratcliffe.

According to a source speaking to the Sun, United’s reasons for wanting to hire Southgate are numerous, with the main focus being his ability to command a dressing room in a manner where he is unphased by “big characters.”

Additionally, there is the belief that Southgate will benefit from having the support of several key figures within the United dressing room at his disposal.

Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and Marcus Rashford are all believed to have a good relationship with Southgate. Kobbie Mainoo is likely to follow, having been brought into the England fold by Southgate.

According to the report it is believed in particular that Southgate could have a positive effect on Rashford, with the source stating that many at United believe Southgate can reignite the forward’s “world-class talent.”
