Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Bentley has withdrawn from the England squad going to the European Under-21 Championships in Holland.
The under-21 Championships kick off this weekend, but England will start their campaign on Monday WITHOUT David Bentley!
After a superb season, which has seen Bentley come good (when some doubted his ability to do so) that also saw him voted the Rovers Player of the Year for 2006-2007, he was expected to finish it off with a strong England squad looking for glory in Holland.
However, the official Blackburn Rovers website have broke the new that Bents has withdrawn from this squad due to fatigue. After speaking with Stuart Pearce it was agreed that he would stay behind and not fly out with the rest of the squad when they leave today.
This will obviously be a blow to England's chances as a player of his quality will be hard to replace. It is somewhat of a surprise to me but if it is in ROVERS' best interests for this to happen it has to be done, as it is no good seeing him burnt out and unable to perform for us next season, even if it is to England's benefit this summer...
