"Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips are both cut up and stitched, Rhys hasn't trained for three days, Gini Wijnaldum leaving the club and we all love him to bits.

"We will miss him so much, with football it's normal that people leave, but I will miss him so much."

The German also made a few kind remarks about his rival, Roy Hodgson.

"Roy is a legend as well, very influential and important for football,"

he added.

"He travelled the world managing, saw very early how defending really has to work and kept that up through his career, exceptional."
