Cole continues to be frozen out by Mourinho.
â€śI cannot think about national teams at the same time as thinking about my team,â€ť he said. â€śThere are national team managers who are very clear.
â€śThey go with their players. It doesnâ€™t matter if their players are playing in the club, or not.
â€śAll these years as a club manager, I found lots of them like this.
â€śOthers are influenced by whether the player is playing or not. There are different theories.
â€śThere are people who like players who didnâ€™t play particularly well in the season. Why? Because they are fresher, stronger, have more energy, donâ€™t have the mental fatigue of competition, and are more ready.
â€śOther managers want players who perform fantastically well in the season. Itâ€™s up to them.
â€śItâ€™s a work Iâ€™ll have one day, maybe. When I have such a job, I will have time to create my own theory, if you can say that.â€ť
