Shortly after retiring from football, Gareth Southgate chose to start his coaching career at Middlesbrough, the club he had played for as a player. That season, under Gareth Southgate’s guidance, the team finished 12th in the Premier League and managed to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Southgate then went on to coach the club for three more full seasons before being sacked by the club in May 2009. The highlight of his managerial career, however, began in 2016 when he became manager of the England national team.
After becoming manager of the England national team in 2016, Southgate led the team to the 2018 World Cup and led a young England team to the semi-finals of that tournament. Unfortunately, the young side lost to the Croatia national team in the semi-finals and did not reach the final. But after four years of experience, the England national team is now more mature than it was four years ago. At the end of this year’s World Cup in Qatar, they will once again be looking to make a strong run for the title.
