Keir Starmer explains why he has sympathy for Gareth Southgate as he weighs in on Cole Palmer debate

Sir Keir Starmer said he is backing England “all the way” at Euro 2024 as he explained why he has sympathy for Gareth Southgate.

During an interview with Channel 5 News, the Labour Leader drew comparisons between himself and the England boss.

“I’ve been changing my party, getting us to a position where we hope to win this election and along the way, almost everybody is giving their view,” Sir Keir said.

“The same is happening to Gareth now.”

Sir Keir also weighed in on the Cole Palmer debate, admitting he wasn’t sure he would start the Chelsea man in the next game, but that he is a “real talent”.
