Gareth Southgate who is the manager of the England national senior men's team has explained that he has made peace with Jose Mourinho over his mistake calling him a wrong name.
The 50-year-old stated clearly that Jose Mourinho knew that he made a mistake and had to call him to apologize for how he called him 'Gary'.
But Gareth Southgate was not happy with how he was given an instruction on how to use Harry Kane in England's coming three international games.
Last season, Harry Kane suffered an injury and missed some important games for Spurs in which Mourinho had to fall on Son and Lucas Moura up front.
And with only four games played so far this season in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho wants all his players to be in good shape.
According to the report on UK Sun, Gareth Southgate explained below.
“Jose messaged me privately to apologise and I kind of knew what he’d said because he’s called me Gary before in a media conference a few years ago.
“But I have no issue with that all and I told him that there’s only one Gareth he’s got to get right and that’s the player who will score goals for him this year.
“Goodness me, we have coaches coming to this country who can speak four or five languages like Jose,''.
Gareth Southgate has been England manager since 2016 and the Three Lions have played 43 games under him winning 25, lost 8 and drew 10.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Jose Mourinho blasted those who branded him a defensive manager after Tottenham Hotspur demolished Manchester 6-1 at Old Trafford.
The victory saw Harry Kane and Heung-min Son score brace while Serge Aurier and Tanguy Ndombele also scored a goal each in the meeting.
Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes' second-minute spot-kick ended up a mere consolation despite scoring first in the game.
The North Londoners also scored five goals against Southampton earlier in the season and the Portuguese born tactician stylishly claimed his side could have ended scoring ten or even more goals in those encounters if they had an attacking manager in charge.
