London: With the Football Association appointing Roy Hodgson as the new manager of the England squad in place of Italian Fabio Capello, there is a possibility that Chelsea FC captain John Terry could be axed from the national squad for the Euros 2012.
According to a report in The Sun, Coach Hodgson does not seem in favour or comfortable about having both Terry and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand in the same squad, as he believes the presence of both men will cause divisions in the camp.
Hodgson has not yet spoken to either player about the situation.
But Terry has said he has no problems about going to the Euros whoever is in the squad and insists he will never give up on England.
Ferdinand wants to go too but has not voiced his feelings publicly.
Even if the pair insist there will be no animosity, Hodgson is still concerned about the atmosphere that could be created among the squad.
It would be a bitter blow for Terry if he is axed, especially as he is also suspended for Chelsea’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
Hodgson names his squad next Wednesday and flies out for a training camp in Spain the following Monday before a friendly in Norway on May 26.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
