Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has fired a parting shot at former England coach Fabio Capello.

Ferdinand, who has already ruled himself out of the running to succeed John Terry as captain, tweeted the national team "don't need anything else lost in translation."

That was an apparent dig at Italian Capello, whose poor command of English has brought criticism.

Ferdinand added: "We need an English manager now. Harry Redknapp would be my choice by a distance."
