Gareth Southgate to stay on as England boss until 2022

Gareth Southgate has signed a new contract to stay on as England manager until the 2022 World Cup.

It is reported he will earn around £12million over the next four years.

He guided England to their best World Cup performance since 1990 as they lost in extra-time to Croatia in the semi-finals in Moscow.

Southgate, 48, told reporters: ‘I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the national team through the next two major tournaments.

‘The job remains an incredible privilege and a true honour.

‘Experiencing at first hand how the nation united behind the team this summer was something special and it will be great to see how far this young squad can go.

‘I must acknowledge the hard work and commitment of my staff and the players over the past two years.

‘I have learned a great deal from them and their passion and professionalism has been an inspiration to my own work.’

Southgate replaced Sam Allardyce as England manager in 2016.
