Man Utd boss Ferguson wants Ferdinand to REJECT England return

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is upset with Rio Ferdinand's England recall.The Sun says United facing an FA Cup replay at Chelsea on Monday April 1, Fergie believes 34-year-old Ferdinand will now be forced to play too many games in too short a period. That flies in the face of how United's medical staff try to carefully manage the toll on Ferdinand between games.

Fergie held talks with Ferdinand yesterday and now the player is left with an agonising decision:

Ferdinand can gamble on his fitness and potentially risk facing Fergie's wrath by agreeing to play for England.

Or tell Roy Hodgson he does not want to play - effectively ending his international career and kissing goodbye to playing in next year's World Cup.
