Tiger Fighting, October 1st. At the press conference before the Europa League, Tottenham coach Mourinho once expressed his hope that the three Lions coach Southgate will take care of Kane. Southgate also made a press release. Responded at the meeting.
Southgate said: "He is in a good mood, and I heard what he said at the press conference. Mourinho will not call me, he will stand at the top of the Tottenham stadium and tell us. I am frustrated that I am not. His friend, I know Steve Holland is, because he helped Mourinho win the championship, so it’s easy to understand."
"We won't let players start in three consecutive games, but I can't guarantee that any player won't play in three games. You may put a player on the field for 5 minutes at the last minute, and people will say you didn't follow the promise. But we The mission is to manage the lineup, we will be responsible for the health of the players."
"This season is a challenge for the club and the national team, so we have to work together. It is not good for anyone to reach a consensus. Mourinho also needs to help us take care of Kane in April and May, because there are 55 million people are counting on him."
Mourinho: Healthy Kane should also start every game for Tottenham, but he didn't have it yesterday. I think this is the point. If you have such a player, you send him on the field hoping to win every game, but you cannot do that. I think Southgate and Holland will take care of the players. I don’t think they want to associate the results of something this week with three international matches. This is obviously too much, especially for me. For the players.
So I won’t talk to Southgate, nor Holland, even though he and I are good friends. Just let them do their work the way they want, they have this freedom. I will not talk to Giggs, I will only respect their work. After all, although these players are ours, they are also theirs. Hope Southgate and Holland understand what happened to Tottenham this week and respect these players.
Of course this is just my hope, I will not call anyone, or ask or pray for anything. I don't want to put pressure on it. They have the freedom they deserve within the scope of their work, which I absolutely respect.
