Both Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Tottenham Hotspur equivalent Mauricio Pochettino have stated that they would be interested in taking the England national job in the future.

The Three Lions are currently looking for a new head coach after scandal involving Sam Allardyce claimed the former West Ham trainer’s position this week.

Gareth Southgate is in temporary charge of the senior squad for the next four games, with the FA involved in the process to find a long-term replacement at Wembley.

Wenger has been touted in the press as a potential successor, with talk that this will be his last season at Arsenal.

Pochettino meanwhile has impressed at both Southampton and Tottenham, improving the fortunes of both clubs in his time in the English game.

The media have understandably been quizzing managers this week over their potential interest in taking over the England role and both of the North London coaches have confessed their interest in the national posting.

“One day, if I’m free, why not?” BBC Sport quote Wenger as saying, while Pochettino also left the possibility open.

”Yes, why not? In the future,” the Spurs boss said.

Although neither manager would surely leave their current posting at the moment, there could be scope further down the track for a move to take over England.
