Although he thought he performed well against the Reds and Denmark, he has now opened up on how Bielsa saw things differently.
“I played the game for England, and thought I had done reasonably well, and same against Liverpool, but the meeting after that he took half an hour to just absolutely batter me," he told the Leeds That podcast.
“He just said I wasn't good enough, the first game I was alright but the second game I didn't look myself.
“He does it to keep you grounded, to not think 'oh we beat top of the league last week and we are playing Leicester next week'.
“He does it to let you know you have bad games and you can always improve. That is something he does very well, doesn't let you get too high and doesn't let you get too low, and if you do get too low he will just keep consistent with you."
