Jack Wilshere: England should try to lure Eddie Howe out of Newcastle if Gareth Southgate leaves after World Cup elimination

IF Gareth Southgate leaves England job I would love it if the FA tried to get Eddie Howe.

I know how good Eddie is from my time at Bournemouth, but people wondered if he could make the move to a bigger club.

Well, now he’s shown at Newcastle how adept he is at developing players and turning them into title challengers.

The problem for the FA would be convincing him to swap his club for his country – and I’m not sure they will be able to do that.

He may feel like it’s too early for him and that he wants more time to find success in the Northeast.

If he were supplying silver for Newcastle he would be a god.

But the England job is the pinnacle of any England manager and it could be difficult to turn down when there’s a reasonable offer on the table.

Eddie is so thorough in everything he does – from the way he organizes the season to his well thought out training sessions to the one on one mentoring he gives to the players.

He’s a top manager. I only had Arsene Wenger as club boss before I went to Bournemouth and he was a great manager too – but in a different way to Eddie.

Arsene would show you a lot of trust and confidence and leave you to move on with it. Eddie was more detailed, probably because his level of player wasn’t as good as Arsenal’s.

Eddie needed to exercise more. Arsene didn’t really have to tell Samir Nasri or Tomas Rosicky how to play between the lines. Eddie told you how to do it and gave you feedback – not always positive – but the way he did it made you want to really play for him.

I can’t recommend him enough.

I don’t think we need an English boss, but he needs to understand the English game.

Arsene was the best coach of my career and although he brought his own style, he also inherited many of our qualities.

While ex-England boss Fabio Capello got plenty of stick, I found him incredible.

But the England job is the pinnacle of any England manager and it could be difficult to turn down when there’s a reasonable offer on the table.

He gave me my debut when I was only 18, just after the 2010 World Cup, and gave me the confidence to play in that environment.

It is known that his English wasn’t the best, so we didn’t have long conversations, but he put me in the team and supported me at a young age, and I will always be grateful to him for that.

I know he wasn’t the most popular coach in the country and some squads but I wasn’t aware of that at first because I was just so nervous and I wanted to keep going and do my best.

But there were rules about not leaving the table until everyone was done, no butter, stuff like that that some of the older players didn’t like.

A manager doesn’t need to be liked to be successful, but they do need to be respected.

If you have that respect, then everything is fine. We live in a naive world if we think everyone will like the coach.

Even at my U18 coaching level at Arsenal, I feel it when I’m picking the team. You want your players to fight for you, but they won’t be happy if you leave them out.

Arsene was the best coach of my career and although he brought his own style, he also inherited many of our qualities.

I’m not surprised that Gareth is thinking about his future, but he has earned the right to think about it and decide what he wants to do. He’s a very honest guy, which is what the country loves about him. In his interviews you can tell that he is authentic, which is one of his strengths.

He’s an intelligent man who analyzes everything and finds out what’s best to do – for the country, for the team and for himself.

If he goes on he knows the next two years will be really important and hopefully we can win the Euros – but I would also understand if he resigns.

He brought the team to an incredible place. He almost guaranteed that we will be competitive in the next ten years.

People say it’s easy being an England manager with the talent we have, but he’s been diligent in the way he’s brought on new players and of course this squad is so young.

Eventually we’ll have to turn that into victories, but it’s a great place to be.

Like the rest of the country, I’m still frustrated that we lost to France in the quarter-finals. It was a huge missed opportunity.

The structure and the way we played was good. But we didn’t have that decisive advantage.

You can study the stats and see that we played better than them, we had more possession and more shots – but we lost.

It’s about those clinical moments in both boxes.

France will be worthy champions if they lift the trophy but it will hurt even more for the English fans knowing they were there to win them and that we really could have been.
