Sterling dropped by England after training bust-up

The FA has chose to drop Sterling from Thursday's EURO 2020 qualifier against Montenegro as a result of a "disturbance" in a private team area.

Several versions of the incident have appeared in the British media and Southgate sounded frustrated by the leaks.

The spat between the Three Lions crew-mates will no longer have performed the rest to reduction Gareth Southgate's preparation for the contests and can maybe be looking out for to place the incompatibility within the support of the players as snappy as imaginable. "But for this "throat grab" that we are TOLD it's for I can't understand it". We have some excellent senior players who played a part in bringing everyone together.

"With global football", he explained, "you're playing and training with your rivals, but you've got to be sensible enough to know that we're all here doing the same job". The position he plays, and what he's doing for club and country, is an wonderful thing, which I will try to replicate myself.

"Obviously I'd like to think that everybody knows if I ever played against them, then my will to win for my team will always override any friendships or relationships, but when I come here for England it is all put to one side", he said. Raheem is a very important player for us but I feel it was the right. As a manager, you hope that you bring lots of good moments for players.

"I'd rather deal with it now so we can all focus on the game".

"And I also accept that, at times, they're not going to be bouncing with joy when they see my face walking through the meal room".

'Do you want to go back to kindergarten?'

Yet, speaking at an unscheduled news conference, the England manager made clear the decision was one for which he took responsibility.

"Gareth spoke about what he thought and he asked us about what we thought of it as well", he said.

"I don't remember many..."

"I never really was uncomfortable playing for England because I never really played and I never really felt proud of it, but I never once turned up thinking, 'Oh, I can't stand these Manchester United or Chelsea players'".

"So, any manager of any big club or big nation knows that all of those situations are hard".

"It is not for me to discuss the details of the incident, there is nothing to be gained from that".
