Lef-back Mourinho would go with Ben Chilwell

Jose Mourinho says he “wouldn’t think twice” about choosing Ben Chilwell over Luke Shaw to play at left-back for England and believes Jack Grealish should get the nod over Marcus Rashford. Mourinho coached both Rashford and Shaw during his time in charge against Manchester United and frequently criticized the latter publicly. While the Portuguese manager admits that the 25-year-old full-back has improved over the past year, he feels Chelsea star Chilwell deserves to start at Euro 2020. “Left-back I would go with Ben Chilwell, and I wouldn’t think twice,” he said. “He is intelligent, he covers the space, the diagonals inside very well, Ben is dangerous in attack, he is good in the air and is good on set-pieces.”

Jack Grealish is untouchable

“Luke Shaw has a good season and an evolution in terms of emotion, professionalism, but Ben has something more, mostly with the ball, the way he thinks, he’s very calm under pressure. I like Chilwell.” Mourinho thinks Rashford is at his best playing on the left wing but says that Grealish is the one manager Gareth Southgate should choose to start. “Harry Kane is untouchable, Jack Grealish is untouchable, and the best position for Grealish is on the left,” he said. “For me, Marcus Rashford can only play there. When Marcus plays on the right, he is completely lost. He is outstanding on the left attacking spaces, but Grealish is amazing for me is tremendous and what he creates and his personality. He reminds me of Luis Figo. I like him.”

When asked about the midfield, the Roma head coach said: “Playing with Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham would be perfect, but maybe this first game play Kalvin Phillips with Rice.” England kick their campaign off against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday. Gareth Southgate’s men will then take over Scotland on June 18 before finishing Group D against the Czech Republic on June 22.
