The extracts on this page are taken from selected national newspapers. The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of Manchester United.
The newspapers are, not surprisingly, dominated by talk of "bitterness and unrest in Camp England" (Daily Mail) following the John Terry-led talks with Fabio Capello. The Mirror claims a gang of nine players, including Wayne, threatened the coach with a revolt.
If the players objected to Fabio's formation, they have an ally in United captain Gary Neville. The Reds defender is quoted in the Daily Star as saying, "I was surprised at the insistence on continuing to play 4-4-2 against Algeria. (The match) was made for Steven Gerrard to get closer to Wayne Rooney. You could see Rooney getting frustrated by the lack of possession. Our best player against Algeria, Gerrard, was sacrificed to the left. He should be in central positions affecting the game."
