West Ham are disappointed that Scott Parker has not been released by England this week following the game against Wales.
Fabio Capello has allowed several first team players to return to their Premier League clubs but Parker who faces United on Saturday has remained with the England squad.
London’s Evening Standard reports:
“West Ham are “disappointed” that their inspirational midfielder Scott Parker was not one of six players released by England coach Fabio Capello after the 2-0 win over Wales.
“Capello has allowed Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, Chelsea trio John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, plus Spurs’ Michael Dawson to return to their clubs before tomorrow night’s friendly against Ghana at Wembley.
“The injured Kyle Walker was also released. The quintet all look certain to be involved in next week’s Champions League quarter-finals but Parker, who has been outstanding for relegation-threatened West Ham all season, has been retained, despite coming off with a slight calf injury towards the end of the match in Cardiff and aggravating a shoulder problem during the match.
“Parker, who will be in direct opposition to Rooney on Saturday when United go to West Ham for a Premier League clash which is crucial to both clubs, may be left out of Capello’s starting line-up tomorrow but the Hammers remain concerned”
Here’s opening Capello decides to play Parker as the game against West Ham is far from a formality. United have our own concerns with Chicharito likely to have to settle for a place on the bench after playing and travelling with the Mexican team.
