According to reports from The Times, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will consider appointing Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard as his assistant should he become England’s next manager.

The Three Lions are on the search for a new manager following Roy Hodgson’s resignation, which was announced after the shock 2-1 defeat to Iceland on Monday evening.

And Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has emerged as one of the strongest English candidates, although the FA have insisted they’ll also consider foreign managers for their top job.

According to The Times, the 38-year-old would consider bringing in a former England international as his assistant, with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard one of the names mooted.

The four-time former Reds Player of the Year made 114 appearances for England and captained them at the 2014 World Cup – where Roy’s boys plummeted out of the Group Stages without a single win to their name.

However, the bookies’ favourite to succeed Hodgson is currently Gareth Southgate.
