Gareth Southgate says his England team setup urgently needs more women
The Guardian says Gareth Southgate has said he urgently needs to hire more women to work with the England men’s football team, after accepting the current training setup is “nowhere near where we should be” when it comes to gender equality.
The England manager named just two women who currently work with the squad to prepare them for international matches. He said the Football Association as a whole was better on gender equality, with about 38% of staff being female. “But as my daughter said to me: ‘Oh, that’s good is it?’”
Southgate said he was partly motivated to ensure equality of opportunity by his family life. “What world do I want for my daughter? What opportunities do I want for my daughter?”
