Arsenal star Ben White ‘left England camp over alleged bust with manager after struggling to mingle with team-mates’

BEN WHITE has reportedly left England’s World Cup squad over a row with Gareth Southgate’s assistant Steve Holland.

The Three Lions announced on November 30 that the Arsenal defender is leaving the Qatar camp due to personal reasons.

The 25-year-old has not played in any of England’s three World Cup games.

Now the Daily Star claims that White’s exit was due to a falling out with a key member of the coaching staff.

And they also state that the ex-Brighton ace has struggled to fully integrate with the squad off the pitch.

White, who revealed ahead of the tournament that he didn’t watch football when he was young and hasn’t yet, and Holland reportedly got into a row after rising tensions in front of the rest of the team.

But the anger reportedly came to a head when the star arrived at a team briefing ahead of the draw against USA without knowing key stats on his own performance in training.

The veteran coach is also said to have felt downhearted at the all-round defender’s lack of knowledge of their strengths against upcoming American opponents.

A joint decision was then made to allow White to be released from his first-ever World Championship and return to the Gunners.

White was an unused substitute in the first two games and was not in the squad for Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Wales.

Boss Southgate now has a 25-man squad ready for tomorrow’s quarter-final showdown against France when Raheem Sterling returns to the Middle East.

Sterling, 27, pulled out of the squad ahead of the 3-0 round of 16 win over Senegal following a break-in at his home in Surrey.

He has been awaiting some final reassurances about his family’s safety before catching a flight back to Doha.

Sterling has three children in total, two of them with fiancee Paige Milian.

The break-in has deeply upset his family and Southgate gave his full support for the player’s return to England.

Surrey Police confirmed £300,000 worth of watches and jewelery were stolen over the weekend.
