The Special One feels it’s his duty to help the Three Lions get back on track.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to sit down with FA chairman Gregg Dyke and discuss how he can contribute to saving the England team.
Dyke bemoaned the number of foreign players currently inhabiting the Premier League and described the national game as a “a tanker that needs turning”, despite setting the Three Lions the target of winning the 2022 World Cup.
And Dyke could have ally in his mission to remodel English football with Mourinho ready to lend his assistance – feeling it is a key part of his role at Stamford Bridge.
“I care, I care. I want my players to be selected, to give everything for the national team. I would never say to a player with a small injury ‘don’t go, stay here, forget the national team”, he told ESPN.
“When the telephone rings and it is somebody connected with the national team I pick up the phone with pleasure. I want to help my academy. I want to support them. I want to give my little contribution to improve everything there to try to bring English players to the top. I care, I care a lot.
“The only match I want England to lose is England v Portugal. All the other matches I want them to succeed. I have three players there at the time but if I can have four, five or six I would like to have four, five or six.”
