‘Come on mate’- Graham Roberts makes joke about Mido’s Mourinho suggestion

Former Tottenham striker Mido took to social media to implore the Football Association to sack Gareth Southgate and appoint Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho as his replacement.

Southgate came under plenty of criticism for adopting a negative approach after England lost 2-0 to Belgium on Sunday, which ended their hopes of qualifying for the final four of the Nations League.

The England boss came out fighting in his post-match press conference when he insisted that his side gave a very good account of themselves on the night despite the 2-0 loss.

Mido played under Southgate during his time at Middlesbrough in what was the former Aston Villa defender’s first job in management.

The striker made it clear that he was not too impressed with his former boss during his time at the Riverside Stadium and insisted that the Three Lions needed a stronger personality to lead them, identifying Mourinho as that man.

Tottenham legend Graham Roberts then responded by joking that the Portuguese coach can take the England job after he has won the Premier League title with Spurs, which Mido seemed to agree with.
