United - Rio`s Mood Lightens Up!

United - Rio`s Mood Lightens Up!

The news that he was to miss the 2010 World Cup must have been a shattering blow for our Rio but, slowly, he`s coming to terms with it.

A few days on from that devastating news and with Rio deciding to stay on in South Africa to assist Fabio Capello, Rio has been speaking about the heartache he suffered but remains level headed about it and realistic, commenting,

"Leading out your country at a major tournament is the stuff of dreams and it was taken from under my feet."

"I can`t sit and sulk and cry over spilt milk. It`s disappointing, but I`ve come to terms with it now."

"I`ve got to get on with it. There`s a lot more people worse off than I am."


And as for that tackle, Rio remains adamant that Emile Heskey was not to blame, remarking,

"It was a complete freak, an accident. The ball came in from one of the lads to Emile, I`d gone to try and tackle him from behind - he didn`t actually see me coming - we both went off balance and Emile`s weight went down on my knee."

"It`s no fault of his at all. It`s just a freak accident that could happen at any given time and it has no connection to any previous injuries I`ve had."


They say time is a great healer but it`ll be interesting to see how Rio`s emotions hold up if England have a fantastic tournament, shades of - it could have been me perhaps?

If we can get two decent seasons out of him, I'll be very happy. Tough on the WC but I don't really care as long as he is in form and fit for us.
