Rio Plays Down 'Lazy' Comments

Rio Plays Down 'Lazy' Comments

Rio Ferdinand has made his peace with England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson following the that infamous article in the News Of The World.

Although complementing the Manchester United defender's ability, Eriksson did also say that Ferdinand was 'lazy sometimes'.

Ferdinand: 'I certainly don't bear any grudges. I spoke to Sven and I respect him for calling me, but knowing him as I do, I would have expected him to do that.

'There's no problem between us. He supported me during my ban for missing a drug test and has always played fair with me in the past.

'I'm not going to discuss what was said between us and I won't dwell on it. It's happened and that's it.

'I can't speak for the other players, but as far as I'm concerned, it hasn't undermined my relationship with him.'
