'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie Puts Sven In His Place!

Despite all of the talk today about England picking Wayne Rooney for the World Cup, Sir Alex Ferguson has told Sven-Goran Eriksson exactly where he stands.

HE will be the one who has the final say on whether Wayne Rooney goes to the World Cup or stays at home.

The Manchester United boss is furious with Eriksson for claiming he would be willing to take Rooney to Germany even if he was not fit enough to play until the quarter-finals of the competition.

Ferguson: 'We will do our best to get the boy to Germany but it will be us who will be doing the consulting. At the moment we have to calm people down, rather than build up people's expectation, which is what is happening at the moment.

'If he is not fit, he is not going to go.

'Sven-Goran Eriksson saying he will take Wayne to Germany fit or not was something we didn't want to hear.

'Really, it is folly to suggest the boy could be out of the game for six weeks, then two weeks later go and play in the World Cup quarter-final. That is a wild dream.

'All the other players will be extremely fit because they will have been playing and training for the previous two months. Players who are performing on that stage have to be 100% fit.'
