Hodgson accused over Ferdinand snub

Published Add your comment

Rio Ferdinand's representative has accused the Football Association and England manager Roy Hodgson of treating the defender with "a total lack of respect" after the Manchester United player suffered another Euro 2012 snub.

The FA confirmed on Sunday that Gary Cahill had been ruled out of the tournament after fracturing his jaw in two places during Saturday's friendly win over Belgium at Wembley.

It meant Hodgson had another space to fill in his squad, having already used his standby defender, Phil Jagielka, to replace Gareth Barry last week. Ferdinand, 33, would have been the obvious choice given his vast experience, but Hodgson has gone for Liverpool youngster Martin Kelly, who made his international debut as a substitute in Norway on May 26.
