Southgate assures Barkley he’s in his plans after ‘frustrating’ double snub

Date Posted,March 27, 2017

Gareth Southgate has had a heart-to-heart with Ross Barkley over his latest England disappointment.

Everton midfielder Barkley did not get a minute on the pitch in either of the games with Germany and Lithuania over the past week after being recalled by new boss Southgate — and has appeared to use social media to try to make light of being overlooked.

The 23-year-old was exiled from the squad after last summer’s Euros and suffered a drop in form, but Southgate revealed he has moved to reassure Barkley after not using him this time.

Southgate said: “I had a good chat with Ross to explain why we hadn’t put him into the Germany game the other day, and the way it played out (against Lithuania) we couldn’t get him on the pitch.

“He’ll be a bit frustrated not to get on.
