It’ll be good for England in the future and it’ll be good for Tottenham.“It’s a friendly at the end of the day and there has to be some give and take.“It’s not being soft [from Southgate for allowing the players to withdraw], it’s a negotiation. As England manager you are negotiating with the Premier League managers all the time to try and have a reasonable relationship and to get the players you need.“Sometimes you might have a manager saying to you, ‘oh he’s got a knock and he can’t make it’…he says to the player, ‘you really could do with missing this and staying with us and making sure you’re 100 per cent when we play again’.“Harry Kane’s situation is that he’s the main striker for Tottenham and there’s not a lot of back-up and he’s going to play a huge amount of games.“So it’s a really difficult position as England manager to try and keep these relationships ok because if they go sour they make things more difficult.“I don’t know what the situation was, whether they’ve just taken it as read just from the medical report from Tottenham.“If the medical report says he is unfit to play at this stage in just a few days’ time, then he could be fit for the game Tottenham game when the international break is finished.“So it could be purely legitimate that it this moment in time he’s not fit enough to play.”last_img read more
