Did Gareth really say this in this context?

From BBC:

And Southgate was not in an apologetic mood after James Morrison's wild, late lunge on Ronaldo, which earned the youngster a red card.

He added: "In that situation, we would all love to do that."

yeh but he didnt mean to ronaldo...he was just saying about when they hold it in the corner etc etc and its frustrating. He didnt really defend morrison either. said we would all love to do that but we can't !

Absolutely lj, I was suggesting that perhaps we might want to get Xavier to do it in the second minute, it's just unusual to hear a manager say it.

I preferred the comment "He is very good at what he does" referring to Ronaldo and going down easily.

Exact quote...

"We would all in that situation love to do what he did but you have got to be mature enough and hold your ground and make the right tackle."

I interpreted it as "we'd all love to kick Ronaldo, but we can't."

it's an error, he said
"In that situation we would all love to do that, except maybe a little higher with studs showing"
