Southgate has worked with the Prince’s Trust for 15 years, and when he started as England senior manager he helped design their ‘Future Leaders’ course.
‘Anything is Possible’ comes out on November 26
It is understood that Southgate will be giving any profits from the book to the Prince’s Trust.
Southgate said: ‘When working with England, we try to take an approach that focuses on what we might achieve, instead of worrying about what might go wrong.
‘When you’re a young person, the world is a complicated place and those clear goals can be clouded by doubt, anxiety and a lack of self-belief.
‘If I can go from a skinny, introverted teenager who was told he wouldn’t make it as a player to someone who played and managed his country then I’m clear that “anything is possible”.
‘By sharing some of the experiences and lessons from the highs (and lows) of my career, I hope to be able to help young people to prepare for the journey ahead of them. I’ve had great fun working on the book and I hope that the young readers – and the older ones – enjoy it’
