Rio Ferdinand took a farewell swipe at Fabio Capello on Thursday as he joined Wayne Rooney in endorsing Harry Redknapp as his choice to become England's new manager.

The Manchester United and England defender said the national team "don't need anything else lost in translation", an apparent dig at Italian Capello, whose poor command of the English language saw him face criticism during his four years in charge.

He wrote on Twitter: "I think we need an English manager now, we don't need anything else lost in translation....Harry Redknapp would be my choice by a distance."
