Football Association to offer Gareth Southgate England job on four-year contract

Gareth Southgate had four games to show the FA his ability as the senior boss, and in three of them, he oversaw two victories and a draw.

The 46-year-old was given the reins in September as a temporary replacement for Sam Allardyce, who was sacked just 67 days after being hired following The Telegraph’s sting into suspected corruption in football.

It is believed that the English governing body was leaning towards hiring Southgate after World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia, but wanted to wait until the Wembley clash against Scotland, which ended in a 3-0 victory for the Three Lions.

According to The Telegraph , the FA intends to offer Southgate a four-year deal worth £1.5m a year, and a break clause has been included, which can be activated after the 2018 World Cup.

The report adds that the former Middlesbrough player, who has been England Under-21 boss since 2013, will be earning £1m less than Allardyce and Roy Hodgson before him.
