    “I didn’t speak to him about it. I let him know where I was heading with it at the end. Marcus’ evolution has been clear in terms of the responsibility he’s had at his club. He had such a big impact in big games, that he should have been in our squad. The only decision for me was do we send him to both. The key for us is not the relationship with Jose, it’s the relationship with Marcus. We’re very serious about development tournaments but dealing with young players we’ve also got to be serious about their own development. He’s got huge potential and we’ve got to handle him in the right way.”


    “I am not in a position where I make decisions to keep people happy. If I am trying to keep Jose happy that’s going to be difficult. I have got to make decisions that are right for England. None of the managers are going to be around in 10 years, and people like Marcus will be. His relationship with England is key.


    “We want a good working relationship with the clubs but they have got their own objectives. There’s always going to be some collision at some point.”


    “I knew when I made the decision it would be one of the things that would be fired across – ‘you have done it because of José’ and so on – and in many respects it would have been easier for me just to send him with the under-21s and not have to face all of that. But I had to make a decision that was the right one.”


    “I have not spoken to Mourinho about it but I am not in a position where I can make decisions to keep people happy. If I am trying to keep José happy that’s going to be, let’s say, fairly difficult.”
