Southgate delighted for Bennett over Villa success

Gareth Southgate is happy for Joe Bennett over his success at Aston Villa.

Southgate worked with Bennett at Middlesbrough.

"I’m pleased to see he was brave enough to leave,” Southgate said. “It was a big decision for him, he grew up at Middlesbrough and a lot of boys from the North East don’t like to leave.

“Personally (I think) it was the right time for him to move on and it would be great experience for him."
