Ferdinand ‘disrespected’ by Hodgson’s Euros snub
Rio Ferdinand’s representative says England coach Roy Hodgson
has shown the defender a lack of respect by repeatedly ignoring him
for the European Championship.
After Gary Cahill was ruled out of Euro 2012 with a broken jaw,
Hodgson selected Liverpool’s Martin Kelly, who made his England
debut in last week’s win at Norway.
Manchester United’s Ferdinand has 81 caps.
Ferdinand’s representative Jamie Moralee says ”to treat a
player that has captained and served his country 81 times (in this
manner) is nothing short of disgraceful. Total lack of respect from
Hodgson and the FA.”
Hodgson denied last month that Ferdinand wasn’t in the initial
23-man squad over concerns he couldn’t play with John Terry, who is
facing trial for allegedly racially abusing Ferdinand’s brother,
Anton, the Queens Park Rangers defender.
