Gareth Southgate: “I am delighted that Steve [Holland] and I have been able to extend our stay in our respective roles. It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team”; Southgate’s previous deal was due to expire after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar
Southgate’s previous deal was due to expire at the end of the World Cup finals in Qatar in December of next year, but the England boss and his assistant Steve Holland have now signed new contracts through to December 2024.
The announcement ends the speculation surrounding Southgate’s immediate future and means he will lead England at Euro 2024 should they qualify for the tournament in Germany.
“I am delighted that Steve and I have been able to extend our stay in our respective roles,” said Southgate, in a statement released by the FA.
“It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark (Bullingham, chief executive), John (McDermott, technical director) and the board for their support – and of course the players and support team for their hard work.
“We have a great opportunity in front of us and I know they and the fans are all excited about what this squad could achieve in future.”
Southgate took over as England manager in 2016 following Sam Allardyce’s dismissal and has since overseen a period of relative success for the national side
He led England to a World Cup semi-final in 2018 in his first major tournament as manager, before securing a third-place finish in the inaugural UEFA Nations League the following summer.
Southgate then guided England to the Euro 2020 final on home soil, where they were beaten on penalties by Italy at Wembley.
