Club career

Crystal Palace

Southgate began his career at Crystal Palace, playing in central midfield. He became captain and led the club to the 1994 Division One title.

Aston Villa

At Aston Villa, he was converted into a centre-back and was part of a formidable defence. In his first season, he lifted the League Cup and Aston Villa qualified for the UEFA Cup. Southgate played in every Premiership game during the 1998-99 season. He continued to play for Villa in the 1999-00 season, but handed in a transfer request just before Euro 2000 citing a desire to move to a more ambitious club.[citation needed] John Gregory, the then manager of Villa, attempted to keep his club captain but after a year on the transfer list he left the club in 2001.

Middlesbrough

Southgate did not sign for one of the major clubs as many predicted but instead became Middlesbrough's manager Steve McClaren's first signing for the club. This may have partially been due to the opportunity to reunite his defensive pairing with Ugo Ehiogu with whom he was a centre-back at Villa. Immediately he became a firm favourite at the Riverside, winning the club's Player of the Year award in his first season after a series of assured displays whilst receiving no yellow cards.

Southgate was handed the captaincy for the 2002-03 season when Paul Ince left the club and became the first Middlesbrough captain to lift a major trophy when he helped them win the Carling Cup at the Millennium Stadium in February 2004.

There were strong rumours that Southgate could be set for a move to Manchester United following Rio Ferdinand's ban for missing a drug test in January 2004,[citation needed] but it turned out to be nothing more than paper talk.

International career

Southgate made his debut for England as a substitute against Portugal in 1996. He was then named in Terry Venables' squad for Euro 1996 on home soil. At the European championship, Southgate played a towering role in England's charge to the semi-finals. However, Southgate's saved penalty against Germany in the semi-final sent the hosts crashing out.

Southgate also played in the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. Gareth had won 57 England caps and was disappointed not to add to the figure during the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals in Japan and South Korea. However, in the penultimate warm-up game ahead of the finals he captained England for the second half of a 1-1 draw with South Korea.

Management career

Steve McClaren's departure from Middlesbrough, coupled with Terry Venables deciding not to return to Riverside, saw Southgate emerge as chairman Steve Gibson's choice to be the next manager. As Southgate does not currently hold a UEFA Pro Licence[3], it appeared that the Premier League would therefore not sanction his appointment. Southgate later went on to say that he wants a change in the way players can obtain coaching badges [4]. However, on June 7, 2006 Southgate was indeed unveiled as the new manager of Middlesbrough. Southgate has now effectively retired from playing to concentrate on management, although he is still registered to play in case the club suffers an injury crisis. This makes him the first player-manager in the Premiership for seven years.[5] Terence Frederick Venables (born January 6, 1943 in Dagenham, London) is the Assistant England national football team manager and a former English international footballer. ...
