Gareth Southgate’s contract includes a significant pay increase, taking his salary to around £3million a year. His previous deal ran to 2020 but included an option to extend for two years should England qualify for the Euros that year. That has been removed.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the national team through the next two major tournaments,” Southgate said. “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 in the years to come.
“I must acknowledge the hard work and commitment of my staff and the players over the last two years. I have learned a great deal from them and their passion and professionalism in representing England has been an inspiration to my own work. In particular, Steve Holland who I am pleased to be continuing to work alongside through to 2022.”
