Raheem Sterling has been the protagonist of the last dispute between José Mourinho and Pep Guardiola. The English footballer withdrew from the concentration of the English team in advance, without playing in the last game against Iceland, on the occasion of a “calf injury”. However, this has been more than enough for Mourinho, Before the meeting between Tottenham and Manchester City this Saturday, he will bring up the subject at his press conference.
The Portuguese coach was critical of the situation: “Southgate said that some coaches pressured the players not to play for the national team. I would like to know who those coaches are. We all know that Sterling is going to play tomorrow. These are the little details that I think Southgate should explain to all of us. When Eric Dier left the national team last month, he was unable to play two games for Tottenham. He did not play in the Premier League or the Europa League, he needed a couple of weeks to recover. But sterling is going to play tomorrow“.
Guardiola, for his part, answered about what happened: “Maybe Mourinho is a doctor and I don’t know. You have to call the doctors of the selection“This Friday has been a year since Mourinho was signed by Tottenham and tomorrow they will face City again in the Premier League. Raheem Sterling, as the Portuguese warned, is in the squad.
