The 2016 Euro’s is on the horizon and England has actually turned into one of the favorites of reaching the advanced stages of the competition and maybe even in winning it all. Expectations are high for the England national side on making a good run in the approaching competition and this is mainly due to the current form that the players of Roy Hodgson are going through and of the top class skills that they have been displaying in this season.
Jamie Vardy of Leicester City is a goal-scoring machine who has managed to reach the top of the goal-scoring list of the Premier League, Wayne Rooney, Ross Barkley, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling all are going through a superb form and this has given added pressure to Roy Hodgson who has to reach far in the 2016 Euro’s or his time as managing England will be over.
Roy Hodgson’s contract with the England national side expires in the summer and whilst the English coach has already confirmed his desire to stay beyond the stipulated time on his contract, he will only get offered a contract extension if his team performs well in the 2016 Euro’s. He is being linked with the permanent Chelsea role on transferrumours.co.uk
“I have spoken to Roy. We are all on the same page. Roy is a really good manager and if and I don’t think it will happen we had a bad Euros, he would not expect to be kept on. He is a proud man. It is a bit of a storm in a teacup. But I spoke to him about it, the position I thought was clear anyway, so yes the air has been cleared’’ The FA chief executive Martin Glenn said.
From the looks of it, Roy Hodgson is well aware that his managerial role in England is at risk and his stay in the national team will ultimately depend on how his team performs and how far they go in the competition which resumes in June.
