Fergie unhappy with Olympic squad
Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed concern that his preparations for next season will be undermined by the Olympic games.
Ferguson has labelled the chance that the likes of Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs could represent Great Britain as "ridiculous" so close to the start of next season. Both players were reportedly among Great Britain coach Stuart Pearce's provisional list of 80 players last week, with United set to be the hardest hit. With Javier Hernandez and David de Gea also set to be named for Mexico and Spain respectively, Ferguson could be left short-handed with the Olympic tournament ending just a week before the new Barclays Premier League season. "It's ridiculous, utter chaos," he told various newspapers. "I have no idea how badly other clubs are affected, but I would imagine Tottenham will have a few, like Gareth Bale. "Aston Villa have a lot of younger players as well - that is all Alex McLeish needs."
