Spurs striker expresses his unhappiness


Peter Crouch

Peter Crouch feels that he has been treated unfairly by England boss Fabio Capello.

The Spurs striker was was not even named as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Switzerland in qualifying for the 2012 European Championship.

He said in The Sun: “If I’m left out of the team at Tottenham, Harry Redknapp will tell me why and let me know where I stand.

“But that’s not Fabio Capello’s style. He’s not the sort of manager who puts an arm around his players.

“He’s the same with everyone. He keeps himself quite distant from the players and that’s something we’ve all had to adapt to and respect.

“It’s not for me to tell Fabio Capello how to manage. He’s had a tremendous amount of success working his way.

“It’s pretty obvious the manager has made his decision and if I’m not his cup of tea, that’s something I just have to live with.

“It doesn’t look great for me. If I couldn’t get into this squad I might struggle when Wayne Rooney, Jermain Defoe and Andy Carroll are back.

“But I do feel I’ve been slightly unfairly treated because I’ve done well for England when given the opportunities.”
