Gareth Southgate Set To Be Appointed As Lowest Paid England Manager In 16 Years

As if you hadn’t cottoned on, it’s being widely reported this morning that the FA are all set to ensure four more years of trenchant mediocrity by officially appointing Gareth Southgate as the new England manager.

Having come through a four-game interim apprenticeship unbeaten, Southgate has now signed a four-year contract to take over on a permanent basis.

The 46-year-old has agreed a contract that will reportedly earn him around “£1.5million to £2million” per annum for his troubles – making him the lowest paid England manager in 16 years.

Indeed, Southgate’s six direct predecessors were all handed larger salaries by the FA: Fabio Capello (£6million), Sven Goran-Eriksson (£4.5million), Roy Hodgson (£3.5million), Sam Allardyce (£3million) and Steve McClaren (£2.5million).

Funnily enough, however, Southgate’s new deal will see him become the fourth biggest earner in international football at the moment, behind Fatih Terim of Turkey (£2.7million), Tite of Brazil (£2.5million) and Jogi Low of Germany (£2.15million).

So there. Make of that what you will.

  2. Fatih Terim is a disgrace to Turkish football let alone the other scandalous figures in the sports sector of the country. He is the most paid manager among the managers of European national teams; yet, he has not resigned due to his failures on and off the pitch. He is supposed to be the director of Football in Turkey yet Turkey relies on Germany-born players with Turkish descent. Oh yeah, when he signed the contract, he was saying everything was for the country, money did not matter. What a load of crap.

    He is a racist ill-tempered megalomaniac who has been backed by the rulers of Turkey.
