Gareth Southgate Appointed England Manager On 4-Year Contract After Successful Interim Spell

The FA have officially announced Gareth Southgate as the next permanent England manager, with the former Middlesbrough manager signing a four-year contract more than two months after being handed the role on an interim basis, 90min reports.

Southgate was handed the reins of the side following the dismissal of Sam Allardyce in September after the Telegraph released footage of the 62-year-old discussing how to ‘get around’ FA rules with undercover journalists.

England have now played four games under Southgate’s leadership, beginning with a comfortable 2-0 win over Malta before a 0-0 draw with Slovenia halted any perceived progress dead in its tracks.

A 3-0 stuffing of Scotland earlier this month got the Southgate train rolling out of the station once again, and only a late Spain fightback a few days later prevented the Three Lions from stringing together back-to-back wins.
