Southgate said that only those who have been in this kind of position really know all of the detail that’s involved in those decisions, all the complexities of any decision that they take. Everybody will view it differently, people will fall into every campsite on every decision that they make. They have to do what they consider to be the right thing.

“If you’re only organized to make decisions that will make everybody happy, that’s not a route that’s going to work either because it’s difficult to keep everybody happy. I have to do what’s right for the country, what’s right for the team and all the while trying to take care of the players,” he added.

Former England players Rio Ferdinand and Gary Lineker have both recommended that this kind of incident is fairly common and dropping Sterling is a step too far-off.

More telling were his quotes on his Croatia future. ​Rakitic has starred in a golden era for the Croatian national side, helping them to a World Cup final in 2018, but he admits that Euro 2020 – where he will take on England, the Czech Republic and one of the playoff winners – could be his final bow. 

“Yes, it is possible,” he said when asked if his final international appearance could come in the summer. 

Let’s be real, that’s quite clear. We will see what and how, first of all, what ideas the menu will have. I haven’t spoken to Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic in a while, he didn’t even call or visit me. We will consider what is best, not only for me but for the whole national team. I said I would give everything I needed for young players. 

“The most important is the well-being of Croatia, we will solve the rest. Slowly. It doesn’t matter what I want, but what is best for all of us.”

“That’s something I’ve not actually thought about being at a club outside the top 6 as we currently are. It’s improbable from the outside looking in, but we’ve started well and progressed a few so far.”

Things like that, if we’re in March and we’re within one or two or whatsoever, and we’ve got a real opportunity, then it’s the kind of thing you can look towards then perhaps. I’ll ask the gaffer to play 6 or 7 at the back and we’ll keep it super tight!

He added that It’s approximately you don’t want to get engrossed thinking about. It’s the defense as well. Personal goals are still enormously a team thing.

Pope is keeping Hart out of the Burnley side, but he feels former England and Manchester City man is one of the Premier League’s goalkeepers of the decade: “He’s got to be mentioned, he’s got to be in the discussion, particularly with what him and what Manchester City did to kind of break the mold of other teams winning the league.

And now he’s in a period where he has to get his head down and work, and he knows that, to show what he can be for this club. It’s down to him now. And I showed faith with him and I’ll continue to do that, but we also have to go with him a bit.

“I’ve sat here and probably been a bit harsh on him at times, but now is not the moment to do that because I think I saw an effort and desire, and I’ve seen it in training in the last couple of weeks.”
