Ukraine anger over Campbell diversion tactics
Ukraine have responded indignantly to Sol Campbell’s comments about racism in the country, surely made to divert attention away from the impending embarrassment caused by England’s fans and especially players.
Campbell advised English to stay at home to avoid racism and violence, but the organisers have pointed out that the latter is far more likely to be caused by Campbell’s countrymen.
Euro 2012 director Markian Lubkivsky retorted, “It’s bad enough England qualify for this tournament but making such comments is below the belt even for them.
“They can be concerned about the Ukraine if they like, but they should remember that everyone else is far more worried about their lot, and especially their brand of football.
England defender Phil Jagielka weighed in by stating his belief in Roy Hodgson to inspire the team to new levels of disappointment.
Back in the Premier League, Eden Hazard has announced he will join Chelsea after they were the first club to retweet his pleas for someone to pay him even more money.
