Gareth Southgate appointed England manager on four-year contract

SHARE:

Gareth Southgate has been appointed as England manager on a four-year deal.

Southgate, 46, stepped up from his role as England Under-21s manager in September following Sam Allardyce's departure after only 67 days in charge.

He oversaw two wins and two draws as interim boss and has signed a contract reportedly worth up to £2m a year.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there is huge potential," said Southgate.

"I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I am also conscious getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully.

"I'm determined to give everything I have to give the country a team that they're proud of and one that they're going to enjoy watching play and develop."

Former defender Southgate, who made 57 appearances for England as a player, becomes the fourth permanent manager of the national team in as many years.

The ex-Middlesbrough boss oversaw a comfortable World Cup qualifying win against minnows Malta, before his team laboured to a goalless draw in Slovenia.

He took a significant step towards being appointed full-time manager with a 3-0 win against Scotland in qualifying earlier this month, before his team squandered a 2-0 friendly lead against Spain at Wembley to draw 2-2 four days later.

Before becoming part of the international set-up, Southgate's only managerial experience was his three-year spell at Boro, who were relegated under him in 2009.


What people have said about Southgate


England captain Wayne Rooney: "He's done all he can and I'm sure he's the frontrunner. From my point of view, he's in pole position."

England defender Gary Cahill: "He's been there. He's been an England player at major tournaments, has the experience and knows how the players are feeling and the pressure you're under in an England shirt. He can relate."

England midfielder Jordan Henderson: "The manager has been brilliant. The players have got on really well with him. He gives responsibility to players and he listens."

Former England defender Danny Mills: "The job he's done is impeccable. He's made big decisions. A lot of people say he's too nice. Yes, he's an absolute gentleman, and very articulate, intelligent, but he's got an edge."

Former Scotland international Pat Nevin after England's win over Scotland: "Why do you have to give him the job now? There is no reason to do it. Wait until the summer and you have all sorts of options, one being Gareth still. England are going through anyway but you might be turning down the opportunity to get Arsene Wenger or someone of that ilk."

Former senior FA executive Adrian Bevington: "I think he is suited to the ebb and flow, the rhythm of international football. The players want to play for him and he is suited to that job and deserves the opportunity."

Southgate stats

Southgate was given his first managerial job at Middlesbrough in 2006, when the then 35-year-old defender quit playing to take charge of his former side.

He led the Teesside club for 151 matches between 2006 and 2009, presiding over their relegation from the Premier League before being sacked with the team fourth in the Championship.
