“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark, John and the board for their support, and of course the players and support team for their hard work. We have a great opportunity in front of us and I know they and the fans are all excited about what this squad could achieve in future.”

Southgate is reportedly now the highest-paid manager in the world.
He’s been rewarded for taking England to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 and to the Euro 2020 final. Whether he can go one better in Qatar next year remains to be seen.
He has overtaken Flick at the top of the standings, who Germany managed to prise away from Bayern Munich this summer.
Deschamps completes the podium spots while Mancini, who won Euro 2020 with Italy, is reportedly the world’s fourth highest-paid manager.
