Roy Hodgson will be out of a job as England manager if the Three Lions fail at next summer's European Championship, FA chief executive Martin Glenn has revealed.
Hodgson's current deal expires after the 2016 tournament in France, and although the 67-year-old former Fulham gaffer wants to lead his country into the 2018 World Cup, Glenn is convinced Hodgson will not push for a new deal if England fail to meet expectations again.
"Roy is a really good manager and he would be the last person in the world who if, and I don't think it will happen, we had a bad Euros, he would not expect to be kept on. He is a proud man," Glenn said, ITV report.
"The question for Roy is how do we set him up to be as successful as we can in the Euros? What can we do and that is what we plan to do."
Glenn added there are no plans for new contract talks until after Euro 2016. When asked if he had told Hodgson of this, he responded: "Yes, we are all on the same page."
England are cruising into next summer's Euros, having won six straight qualifying games to lift them top of their qualifying group.
Hodgson was appointed Fabio Capello's successor in 2012, leading England into Euro 2012 where they were eliminated at the quarter-final stage after a penalty shootout defeat to Italy.
A disastrous World Cup campaign in Brazil last summer where England failed to qualify from their group without winning a game raised questions over his future, however.
