cGareth Southgate has signed a new three-year contract as England manager that will take him beyond the next European Championships in the summer of 2024.
Southgate – the most successful England manager since World Cup winner Sir Alf Ramsey in 1966 – has been rewarded for his work taking the national team to the finals of Euro 2020 this summer.
The 51-year-old currently earns £3million a year but his deal includes a significant increase on that figure. It is thought he will now earn in the region of £5m a year if performance bonuses are met.
This contract will see Southgate and his assistant Steve Holland – who has also signed a new deal – take the team to Qatar and then into the European Championship in Germany that follow in the summer of 2024.
Today Southgate said: ‘I am delighted that Steve and I have been able to increase our stay in our respective roles.
‘It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team. We have a great opportunity in front of us.’
