Ince's Attack On Capello Over Robbo Treatment
Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince has launched an attack on England manager Fabio Capello for his treatment of Paul Robinson.
The Rovers goalkeeper was initially omitted from the last England squad for the friendly with Germany last week but when Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart was injured Robinson was called in as his replacement. However, the 29-year-old didn't even make the bench for the 2-1 win and this has led Incey to hit out at Capello and his farcical treatment (as he put it) of Robbo.
Ince told The People: "I was gutted for him, the whole thing was farcical. Paul's performances this season have been England standard no question.
"Being put on England stand-by was only a back handed compliment and then the insult was compounded by the fact that he wasn't even a sub."
As Robbo wasn't even in the original squad (even if he should've been) then with him coming in after Hart's withdrawal was it really a surprise that he didn't make the bench?
