Gareth Southgate to be honoured by the FWAWe at the Football Writers' Association are delighted to announce that the recipient of our Tribute Evening at the Savoy in January will be Gareth Southgate.
Following discussions with Gareth, his team and the FA, we have decided against our traditional event. Unlike previous Tribute dinners, this one will not focus solely on Gareth's career but on what he has created as England manager with a new style of leadership and culture which helped the squad to a World Cup semi-final this summer.
