England RU team doesn't need curfew: Jones

Mourinho says last weekend "didn't go well" for Rooney and indicated his annoyance at what has panned out, albeit not apportioning the blame necessarily at Southgate's door - a manager he referred to as "Gary".

The most hard subject will be explaining the breakdown in discipline that saw Wayne Rooney and Phil Jagielka ignore instructions to go to bed and continue their drunken celebrations into last Sunday morning the day after England's World Cup qualifying win against Scotland.

"What happened happen in the national team".

"Chris Smalling, you can not ask about because you have your sources, you trust your sources, you write what your sources tell you and you did that for 15 days, so now you're not going to ask me to comment on your sources' information", he said. "What happens there for good or for bad, I don't interfere". I don't interfere and I don't like to comment.

"Other times injuries, sometimes big injures, other times frustrations because they didn't play, because the result was bad".

"Your friend lent you a pencil, you have to take care of the pencil better than if it is your pencil, so I think when one day if I become a national team manager I will try (to)".

"Maybe a bit less, because I watched him against a Danish team in midweek and he scored and I could see straight away that this guy could be unsafe".

Glenn said he doesn't want to "over-dramatize" the incident but it will lead to new rules for players about how they can spend nights off while away with England.

"You drink as well, you are responsible".

The discipline of the squad will form a key part of a scheduled debrief Southgate will undertake with the FA on Wednesday, with all players and staff expected to be reminded of their responsibilities. "But it's private life", Guardiola told reporters on Friday. - Hartley "We have gone the other way".

However, Moyes, who managed Rooney during the formative years of his career at Everton, played down the situation and insists that the Manchester United skipper is an easy player to manage.

"I think it'd be 'why on earth are you doing that given there is an understanding, a team agreement around alcohol consumption during camps?', so there would be questions asked for sure".

"I have known Wayne since [he was] a boy - it hasn't affected his goalscoring, it hasn't affected his performances".

Rooney's future as captain was already under scrutiny, as he was no longer guaranteed of his starting spot for England or Manchester United.

"If the boys were going out for a drink, very often the captain would let the manager know, so the next morning you would probably give them a good sweat session afterwards". "If they do anything outside of that, then they don't want to play for England".

The Australian added: "The time we have to have a curfew is the time we don't have a leadership group within the team".

"The players are adults".

"But we have as well players out and let's not forget, past year the guy who killed us was Rashford".
