England manager Gareth Southgate says he is “conflicted” over his future, having “found much of the last 18 months difficult”.
Southgate’s side were knocked out of the 2022 World Cup on Saturday, 2-1 defeat against France in the quarter-finals.
Afterwards, the 52-year-old said he would “examine and reflect” before deciding to continue.
“I don’t want to spend four or five months thinking I made the wrong choice,” he said.
“It’s too important for everyone to get it wrong.”
Southgate led England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and a first European Championship final in 2021.
However, England entered the World Cup on the back of relegation from their UEFA Nations League group after three defeats and three draws.
One such defeat was a 4-0 loss to Hungary in June at Premier League Wolves’ Molineux Stadium, in which England fans chanted “You don’t know what you’re doing” at the manager.
“I have found large parts of the past 18 months difficult,” said Southgate, who has a contract until December 2024.
“For everything I’ve loved for the past few weeks, I still have how things have been for 18 months. What was said and what was written, night in wolves.
“There’s a lot of things in my head that are really conflicted right now, so what I want to make sure, if that’s the right thing to say, is that I definitely have the energy for the TO DO.”
Southgate began his reign as England manager in October 2016 and have won 49 of his 81 games in charge, with the loss to France being his 14th.
His side suffered a 2-1 loss to Croatia in the last four of the 2018 World Cup in Russia after leading 1-0 and England were beaten on penalties by Italy in the final. Euro 2020.
“When I got through the last few tournaments, my emotions were hard to really reflect properly in the weeks that followed,” Southgate said.
“It took so much energy from you and you have so many things going through your mind.
“I want to make the right decision either way because it has to be the right one to go back or the right one not to go back and I don’t think tonight is the time to make a decision like that.
“The next few days either.”
