Former Manchester United and Real Madrid, David Beckham has described the role of England manager as “a dream job”.
Beckham, 44, earned 115 senior caps for the Three Lions, of which 58 came in between 2000 and 2006 while holding the armband of the captain.
The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star decided not to pursue a coaching career after retiring in 2013, with his most recent involvement in football coming through his MLS franchise Inter Miami, who are expected to start life in the United States’ top tier in 2020.

However, it seems David Beckham could be persuaded to try his hand on management if the England job became available.
And when asked if he ever regarded running old club United, he said to GQ: “I believe some individuals in the FA might have seen me as a future England manager, just because I might have had a good career as England’s captain.
“If someone turned around to me and said, ‘If the England job came up, would you take it?’, I mean, of course I would think about it, because I’m a passionate Englishman and I’m passionate about our national side, but would I be any good at it? Who knows?”
For now, Beckham is happy to leave the national team under the guidance of Gareth Southgate, a former team-mate of his at international level.

“It’s a dream job, but Gareth is doing the most incredible job for us right now. He’s brought energy and excitement back into the game and the fans – myself included – are enjoying that.”
Under Southgate, England reached the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990, losing 2-1 to Croatia after extra time in Moscow at the 2018 tournament.
