Gareth Southgate: "I'm a fighter so you never lie down and my job is to lift everybody else.

"You accept people are going to be abusive. It's unfortunate but I'd rather it be aimed at me than the team because I can handle it.

"If the chairman thinks there's a need for change - and change would help - then he'll do it.

"He's an incredibly supportive person with a very stable football club but he's also a ruthless businessman."
