Barry says that Cityâ€™s very own â€śTeam Bridgeâ€ť have told the left-back to listen to England manager Fabio Capelloâ€™s appeal for a rethink â€“ and not to make a decision he could one day live to regret.
â€śThere have already been conversations between the City boys and Wayne and we would all like to see him go to the World Cup,â€ť said City and England midfielder Barry.
â€śWe just wanted to see what his mindset is at the moment and I am sure there will be a time when we talk to him about it again. He hasnâ€™t really softened his stance so far, although he has been injured so I havenâ€™t seen him for a while.
â€śHis thoughts were the same last time we spoke and at the end of the day the decision will be down to Wayne.
â€śI think we would all like to see him go to the World Cup. Time can change peopleâ€™s opinions and hopefully that will happen with Wayne.
â€śI am sure he doesnâ€™t want to sit down in a few yearsâ€™ time and regret anything. None of us knows what thoughts he is having, but I hope he will change his mind. World Cups donâ€™t come around very often. It might be his last chance.
â€śNo one wants Wayne to take a decision he may one day regret, but at the same time I think we must all Ârespect whatever he wants to do.â€ť
