Tottenham coach Mourini used his own language skills in the Olympics to put pressure on England coach Southgate, but he also acted very politely.
Mourinho hopes that during the next national team match day, the England team should be cautious when using Tottenham players, because Tottenham’s recent schedule is intensive and Kane and other players are very tired and he is worried about injuries. Mourinho said: "When Kane is healthy, he should start every game for Tottenham. When you have such a player and you want to win every game, you have to send him, but you can't do that."
"I believe that Gareth (Southgate) and Steve (Horland) care about the players. The national team has three games this week, which is obviously too much, especially for my players. I think They don’t want to see serious results (referring to player injuries)."
"So, I didn't talk to Gareth or Steve. Of course, Steve and I are very good friends. I want to give them freedom and let them do their jobs. I respect them, They also respect the players, because these players are not only England players, but also our players. Gareth and Steve know what the Tottenham players have experienced this week."
"This is just my hope, I will not call, I will not plead, they should be free, I respect them very much."
