Giggs Praise for Rio

Playing alongside Jonny Evans, at the Bernabeu, Rio Ferdinand gave a performance that epitomized his class.

Once again it had the pundits wondering why he continues to be ignored by Roy Hodgson, for the England squad.

But, looking on the positive side of things, Ryan Giggs believes that England`s loss is our gain, remarking to the media, after the 1-1 draw,

"England`s loss is United`s gain. He`s been playing like that all season."

"His experience, leadership sills and organization were needed against Madrid with two young players like Jonny Evans and Rafael around him."

"He`s just a top player. He has proved that time and time again and he`s proved that against Real."


Well said Ryan, well said!

Why would you want the experience, order and leadership rio brings when you can have Cahill running with the ball out of defence straight into the opposition? Thing is I accept that he's not the defender he use to be but only the blinkered would deny he's still a far better option than those available. Hodgson is just holding a pathetic grudge and is showing double standards and favouritism in the way he still selects Lampard, Cole and Terry (if he could) but not rio. Doesn't bother me that he's not selected, England's loss is our gain but I just can't stand the way Hodgson has handled it, he's almost rubbing the salt in by saying we're moving on but selecting the same old faces that have tried and failed.
