    Present Tense vs Past Tense

    He said he dislikes sweet things; nervertheless, he ate all the chocolates.

    I read this sentence in a grammar book, and I doubt that this is grammatically correct, don't you?

    Thank you.

    Please tell me if there are any errors in my post.

    It should be, 'He says he dislikes.....' or 'He said he disliked....'
