Having risen through the academy ranks, Southgate became the captain at Selhurst Park and led the team to promotion in 1993.

However, after Palace were relegated from the Premier League two seasons later, Southgate moved to for £2.5m where he would make over 190 appearances at centre back across four seasons.

Southgate’s spell at Villa Park saw him lift the League Cup in 1996, but his time in the Midlands came to an end when joined Middlesbrough for £6.5m in 2001, where he stayed before retiring from the game in 2006.

Which teams did he manage before England?

However, Southgate’s tenure included relegation to the Championship in 2009, and he was dismissed just two months into the club’s campaign in the second tier.

He became the England U21 manager in 2013 and was promoted to the senior team on a temporary basis when Sam Allardyce was sacked after just one game in charge in 2016.

How many times did he play for England?

Southgate made his debut for England as a substitute against Portugal in 1995, which was the first of 57 caps he won for his country.

He played every minute of England’s Euro 1996 campaign on home soil, but Southgate’s tournament ended in tears when he missed his penalty in the semi-final against Germany which sent the Three Lions crashing out.

Southgate also featured for England at the 1998 World Cup and at Euro 2000.

He called time on his international career in 2004, having scored two goals across his nine year spell in the side.
