The Lionesses of England gaffer Sarina Wiegman has given an update on her future ahead of the Women’s World Cup final against Spain.
Sarina Wiegman is resolute in her commitment to her role as the England manager, insisting not to depart from her position before her contract reaches its conclusion. Despite being linked to the USA Women’s National Team job, the Dutch gaffer remains steadfast, affirming that she will uphold her current role until her contract’s expiration in 2025.
Few days to Sunday, Sarina Wiegman is poised to guide England’s Lionesses into an unprecedented Women’s World Cup final. Just 13 months ago, she steered the Lionesses to Euro 2022 victory, and now, she stands on the brink of consecutive tournament triumphs.
The Dutch boss was also involved in the 2019 Women’s World Cup, where her Netherlands team were beaten by the USA. Vlatko Andonovski has resigned from his role as USA manager following their round of 16 defeat to Sweden.
That has led to many rumors that Sarina Wiegman is being lined up to replace him. But she says that will not be the case and she is fully focused on her job with the Lionesses of England.
Sarina Wiegman said:
“I have a contract until 2025. I’m really enjoying my job and I have the impression that people still like me doing that job. I have no plans to leave.”
When she was asked specifically about the links to the USA national team, Wiegman said:
“I’m staying out of that. I’ve heard it. I’m with England, I’m really happy with England and I have a contract until 2025.”
A historic milestone awaits the Lionesses of England as they secure their inaugural World Cup final appearance, a feat unmatched in both men’s and women’s football since 1966. Amidst this momentous achievement, Wiegman remains steadfast, focusing her efforts on disregarding discussions about putting an end to 57 years of longing.
