And supporters will be hoping the boss can earn his pay cheque at the winter tournament in Qatar.

How much does Gareth Southgate earn as England manager?

Gareth Southgate signed a new contract with England last year and his wage is said to be around the £5m-a-year mark.

Previous boss Sam Allardyce signed up for £3m, Roy Hodgson took home a little more at £3.5m-a-year, whilst infamous flop Fabio Capello pocketed a cool £6m.

Sven Goran-Eriksson landed a whopping £4.5m and Steve McClaren £2.5m every 12 months.

Southgate was promoted from his position as under-21 boss and earns £1.7m-a-year in his role.

How old is he?

SOUTHGATE only hung up his playing boots in 2006 and enjoyed a nine-year spell in the England side.

He managed Middlesbrough from 2006 to 2009, before heading into that job with the England under-21s in 2013.

Born in September 1970, he is currently 52 years old.

When did he start managing Three Lions?

AFTER the disaster of Euro 2016, England decided to turn to Sam Allardyce.

But after he was dismissed after just ONE game, Southgate stepped in to take temporary charge in September 2017.

He was officially appointed on November 30, 2016 and signed a four-year deal.
