PFA chief Taylor: We offered to be mediator for Bridge, Chelsea captain Terry

PFA chief Gordon Taylor insists they tried to do all they could to take the tension out of the row between Manchester City fullback Wayne Bridge and Chelsea captain John Terry.

Bridge announced his England withdrawal yesterday.

"The PFA offered to help and contacted both parties with a view to acting as mediators," said Taylor. "But neither came back to us. I am surprised and saddened that this matter could not be resolved."
