Gareth Southgate appointed England manager on four-year contract

Gareth Southgate has been appointed as England manager on a four-year deal, the BBC reports.

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.

He oversaw two wins and two draws as interim boss and has signed a contract reportedly worth up to £2 million 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.
