“Which was recently start a game, Champions League, Tottenham Olympiakos and after 20 minutes I had to make a change.

“We were losing 2-0, and I brought Dier out. That broke my heart but I did it for the team. Probably Gareth tried to explain to Grealish why he did that.”

“It was not done with the intention to hurt Jack. It was with the intention of trying to help the team. But I did not see a reason for it. England were not in trouble, England were in control.

“Denmark were exhausted, physically, mentally. I could even feel with Jack having more space and the game totally broken, I could even see Jack helping to resolve the game even easier and to kill it.

“So I did not see any reason to do that, but I am sure Gareth did it with the intention of helping the team and not of hurting the player.”
