Gareth Southgate confirms England coaching team

Interim England manager Gareth Southgate brings Steve Holland into his coaching team as Leicester City assistant Craig Shakespeare sees his role reduced.

Interim England manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed his coaching team for his four matches in charge of the national side.

Southgate, who took over from Sam Allardyce earlier this week, will oversee World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia later this month, before seeing out the year with games against Scotland and Spain in November.

The Under-21s boss has brought Chelsea coach Steve Holland with him to the senior team to work alongside Sammy Lee and Martyn Margetson, while Leicester City assistant Craig Shakespeare sees his role reduced.

"Steve is somebody who I have become close with in terms of the trust we have and we know each other's ways of working on and off the pitch. The fact that I'm bringing Steve with me and retaining Sammy means that Craig's role with England would change so we've agreed for him to solely concentrate on Leicester's commitments for the time being," Southgate told the FA's official website.

"Craig is welcome back at any time and is somebody who I like and respect as a coach. However, circumstances on this occasion resulted in it being a logical decision for Steve to join me in the set-up and that's a decision Craig respected.

"I'm pleased Sammy and Martyn will be staying on with us as part of the support team. They both bring huge personal qualities and experience of international football. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Chelsea and Cardiff City for allowing Steve and Martyn respectively to continue to work with the England team."

Southgate will name his first squad as England boss on Sunday.
