Manchester United captain Gary Neville has a go at The FA
United captain Gary Neville has today attacked The FA over it’s lack of support for under-fire manager Fabio Capello. ‘Surprise, Surprise’ Neville said, as The Football Association has said it is taking two weeks to decide on the future of Capello. Nev also stated he was ‘disappointed’ with the reaction of fans and pundits following the national side…  

England suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of Germany in the Last 16 of South Africa 2010 Sunday last. Although certain refereeing decisions changed the course of the game, many supporters are asking for the sacking of the Italian boss.

The 35-year-old right-back said: “England are out of the World Cup and, surprise, surprise, we are talking about sacking the manager. If that was a reaction I expected from some fans and pundits, I was disappointed – although not exactly shocked – to hear wavering coming out of the FA. Two weeks to decide Fabio Capello’s future, says Adrian Bevington, the Club England managing director.”

“This is the same Club England – whatever that is – that trumpeted so proudly 28 days ago that it had taken the release clause out of the manager’s contract. One minute these guys are talking about Capello as world-class, now they need a fortnight to decide if he is the man for them after all.”

Neville, who has had his run-ins with The FA before, has accused the idiots of having no ‘backbone’. Rightly so. “What are they waiting for – to see what’s in the newspapers ?, Where is the backbone ? – Now you can understand why I have had my arguments with the FA down the years.” He added: “The FA has to stick by Capello. I do not agree with all his decisions, from squad selection to formation, but nor do I buy the idea that he merits the sack.”
