SOUTHGATE IS SET FOR A SEVEN-FIGURE BONUS IF ENGLAND WIN
After last year’s Euros, England are not the favourites to win the 2022 World Cup. However, the Football Association has set a HUGE raise for England manager, Gareth Southgate if the Three Lions win in Qatar.
According to The Sun newspaper, if our home team make it to the final on December 18th, England’s manager will receive a £4m payment! This is almost triple what was offered to Gareth for the team to win the 2018 World Cup.
In just 5 weeks, England will begin their 2022 World Cup journey by competing with Iran on the 21st of November. After some very unsuccessful matches, rumours were floating around that Southgate will quit his position as manager after the World Cup. He has since debunked these rumours and has said he will carry on being England’s manager. His contract runs until 2024 so he has another 2 years before any major changes happen within the team.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Gareth voluntarily took a 30% pay cut and didn’t take any pay rise in his usual salary when in November of last year, he was given a three-year extension on his contract by the Football Association (FA).
In a recent interview, Southgate expressed “managing England has been the highlight of his career so far”. Fingers crossed that we reach the finishing line and bring that trophy home!
The WAGS (The Wives and Girlfriends) of the England team have been given strict instructions of DOs and DONTs ahead of the first kick-off just a few weeks away. By not following these rules, they could face a £6000 fine and a year in jail. Some of these rules have been confirmed by the press. These are:
- No Littering
- No alcohol
- No swearing
- Must dress modestly and appropriately
- No loud music or singing
- Must act appropriately during the call to prayer
- No selfies outside government buildings
FA Chiefs stated: “It is important to understand that you and your husband or partner are not above the law here.”
