Embattled Jeremy Corbyn refused to step aside as England manager last night – despite a terrible performance in Europe.
The ageing leader faced a mutiny from his team and supporters across the country after his tactics and lack of ambition saw England crash out of Europe against little Iceland.
But he steadfastly refused to budge, insisting he had a mandate to lead, and would still be in charge for the upcoming World Cup qualifying campaign.
Corbyn has been controversial since his first day in charge of the England team when he turned up for training and read out some emails to the players from fans.
“I have an email here from Beryl Biggins from Huddersfield,” he told Wayne Rooney to a hushed and astonished group. “She wants to know why her football tickets are so expensive but you get paid so much to play.”
Calls for Corbyn’s resignation will be sure to increase this week as yet more players resign from the England set-up.
An England insider said: “Soon there won’t be any players left to choose from.”
