Southgate’s Middlesbrough side started well in the Championship but he was controversially sacked in October 2009 with this side only one point off of the top position.
In January 2011, Southgate was confirmed as the FA’s head of elite development, working alongside Sir Trevor Brooking but he left the role after just one year.
Alongside his managerial role at Middlesbrough Southagte also worked as a pundit and co-commentator for ITV and appeared on both Sky Sports and the BBC until he left to return to football management.
In August 2013, Southgate was announced as the new manager of the England under 21 squad replacing his former England team-mate Stuart Pearce.
Southgate had a fantastic start to his reign with his side easing through qualification to the 2015 European Championships only dropping two points.
Unfortunately with key players missing England failed to progress beyond the group stage for the third successive finals.
Southgate’s exciting young team did however find success in 2016 when they won the Toulon Tournament without losing a single game.
In September 2016, after England manager Sam Allardyce’s resigned following the Telegraph’s third party player ownership scandal, Southgate was appointed caretaker manager of the senior side for the next four games.
After winning two and drawing two of the games Gareth Southgate was appointed as full time manager of the England national side on a four-year contract.
