Gareth Southgate has replaced Stuart Pearce at the helm of England U21 team.

“I’m delighted to get this role and extremely excited about the prospect of working with the best and brightest young players in the country.
“I’m a proud Englishman and playing for my country was the pinnacle of my playing career. Since retiring as a player I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience of the game both here and abroad, and I’m eager to play my part in preparing players to compete at the highest level.
“Whenever any team steps onto the pitch for England, being successful is of huge importance, but it is also about developing a clear style of play that can allow our talented young players to flourish.”

As a player Southgate starred for Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. He also earned 57 caps for the national team from 1995 to 2004.
