New England manager unveils training video

February 10th, 2012 by · No Comments · Features

Stuart Pearce, the England Under-21 manager has been asked to take charge of the senior team’s friendly against Holland on 29 February, though the appointment has led to awkward questions for the FA given that Pearce once had to apologise to Paul Ince after allegedly racially abusing him during a match for Nottingham Forest at Manchester United in 1994. “We’re not going to go back over old ground,” Adrian Bevington, the managing director of Club England, said.

Pearce’s elder brother was once a BNP campaigner but the FA quickly made it clear that it did not consider either issue to be relevant despite Capello’s departure coming about because of a separate race issue involving John Terry. “Stuart has made it clear that he is not involved in his brother’s political beliefs,” Bevington said. “I don’t think we can get to the realms of being judgmental on someone because of what their sibling’s views are. It’s a matter for Stuart Pearce’s brother rather than Stuart.”

Sounds a lot like a frying pan/fire juxtaposition that the FA seem to specialise in. Here’s his training and tactics video for the game against Holland. {shouts COME ON, spills beer, sits down}.
