Gareth Southgate Anticipates ‘No Complications’ With The New England Contract

Posted by

Gareth Southgate has indicated that his new England contract should be a formality as he looked forward to a seismic 12-month period and beyond.

Southgate has been focused on Euro 2020 and qualifying for the World Cup, which begins on November 21 in Qatar, and confirmed the latter on Monday with a 10-0 thrashing of San Marino on the road. He will now work with the Football Association’s technical director, John McDermott, and chief executive, Mark Bullingham, to extend his contract, which expires after the World Cup, and has given the strongest signal yet that there would be no issues. The contract in Germany will last until 2024, and he stands to make roughly £6 million every year.

“When you work with staff like I work with and with a group of players who are as receptive and have the talent that we have, then that’s clearly very enjoyable,” Southgate said.

“There’s been no other reason for not sitting down [for contract talks] other than the fact that we felt it was right to concentrate on the European Championship and right to get this qualification done. Now it’s an appropriate time to be able to sit with John and Mark Bullingham and go through everything but I’m not expecting for that to be complicated at all.”
