Sarina Wiegman makes confession over quitting England after Women’s World Cup

Sarina Wiegman insists she has no intention of leaving her role as England manager before her contract expires. The Dutch boss has been linked with the USA job but won’t be quitting her current position before her deal ends in 2025.

Wiegman is set to lead England into their first Women’s World Cup final on Sunday. She spearheaded the Lionesses’ Euro 2022 triumph just 13 months ago and is on course to make it back-to-back tournament wins.

Wiegman was also involved in the 2019 World Cup, where her Netherlands side 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 reports that 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 England.

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.”

Asked specifically about the links to the USA, Wiegman commented: “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.”

England have reached their first World Cup final, in the men’s or women’s game, since 1966. Wiegman insists she does her best to block out the talk of ending 57 years of hurt.

But she admits there has been a real desire to win ever since she took the job two years ago. She said: “I don’t hear it that much because I block out all the noise.

“But I do know it’s there. When we started work in September ’21, I felt the country was so desperate to win a final tournament.

“Everyone was saying that – the players were saying it, too. I thought: ‘This is very weird.’ Everyone wanted to win. I just thought to myself: ‘Okay, what do we have to do? And how can we win? We all want to win.’

“I thought: ‘Stop talking about the results because we know what we want.’ So what action do we have to take? And we took it.

“So now everyone is talking about 1966 – so let’s be at our best and hopefully be successful. One more thing – football is so big in England, it’s so into the culture. That’s incredible to experience. It’s everywhere – and that’s pretty cool too.”
