Mourinho: This Is England’s Best Squad

By | June 7, 2021

LONDON: Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is confident England have a bright chance at Euro 2020 based on Gareth Southgate’s talented squad.

“It’s a generation full of great players. The squad this time around is amazing.

“It’s hard for Gareth Southgate to satisfy the whole country with his options because it’s too wide.

“For example, just look at the position of right back. Who is the best English right -back now? Who is the second best, third?

“The squad this time is very good, a lot of options. Unlike other teams that are able to bring down the strongest starting line -up, but are problematic when there is an injury,” said Mourinho.

For Mourinho, Gareth is quite experienced at this stage and is assisted by Steve Holland who is also a great coach.

However Mourinho warned that the emotional pressure is very high and if controlled, England have a chance to win Euro 2020.

“It has to happen now, like in 1966 (World Cup). It didn’t have to be at Euro 96 because of the tough penalty shootout.

“They have to give everything this time,” he said.
