John Stones insists Gareth Southgate has the ruthless streak to be a successful England boss, saying he's seen his manager's dark side

The 22-year-old former Everton defender, who moved to City for £47.5million in the summer, says the interim boss can be cold-hearted when required and has what it takes to step up following the unexpected departure of Sam Allardyce last week.
