Fabrizio Romano hits out at Eddie Howe England manager links

Fabrizio Romano has taken to his exclusive Daily Briefing column to hit out at the recent reports linking Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe as a potential future candidate for the England job.

Writing today, Romano expressed the view that it’s disrespectful to both sides, with Newcastle deserving to keep their manager focused on their club during the middle of the season, while current England manager Gareth Southgate also continues to do a fine job with the national team, who beat Italy 3-1 at Wembley last night.

Howe has done fine work at Newcastle and Romano admits he’s always been liked by key figures in the FA, though for now there is nothing going on in terms of discussions over changing manager.

Southgate has also done great work in his time in charge of England and will surely get as much time as he wants in the job, so a change doesn’t necessarily seem very likely to happen any time soon.
