Gareth Southgate

Football’s governing body in England, the Football Association (FA), has picked Gareth Southgate as England manager on a four-year deal, reports say.

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.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Southgate oversaw two wins and two draws as interim boss.

He has now signed a contract reportedly worth up to 2 million pounds 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.

This was however 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.

Southgate’s understanding of international football and the development set-up at St George’s Park has proved important, according to FA chief executive Martin Glenn.

“He performed extremely well during the four games he was in temporary charge and he impressed us during a tough interview process,’’ added Glenn.

“Gareth is a great ambassador for what the FA stands for, he’s a very good football tactician and a leader, but beneath that he’s a winner and that’s an important part of the job.’’
