"His name is Rio and he watches from the stands"
Come on, even Fergie said Ferdinand was finished as an England international.
Rio is over 30, injury prone and so up his own backside over the John Terry/Anton Ferdinand situation that "Woy" done the right thing leaving him out of the England squad.
And let's not forget he couldn't just get over his own personal prejudice over the Evra/Suárez fiasco, man up and just shake Suárez's hand!
The England squad is much better off without this stroppy Moanchester United hasbeen causing problems in the dressing room.
If you`re going to quote SAF`s comments from the start of the season then you should also refer to those he made at the end when he said that Ferdinand should go to the Euros. And if being over 30 means you shouldn`t play for England then why are Gerrard and Terry in the squad. As I`ve said before if England are using the Euros to give young players experience then I don`t have a problem with Kelly being selected but if its because of the Terry incident its doesn`t look good from a PR point of view to take the player accused of racism and leave the brother of the alleged victim at home. Especially as some of Terry`s performances at the end of the season were dire, in the liverpool game in particular he looked past it
