Rio Ferdinand is a prolific Twitterer but comments about him being replaced by John Terry have been strangely absent this week. Daily Mail editor discovered the missing tweets…
2.03pm He might play for a rival team, but don’t believe the press. No conflict about captaincy when it’s for the nation, so good luck, @Aaron_Ramsey
2.29pm I’m cheering @England, no matter who’s in charge. Backing @Andy_Strauss, but we need to bowl well.
2.48pm Understand. The captaincy is more of an issue to the press than to me. Got myself a new, designer armband. Wearing it on couch. Nice.
3.09pm Thinking this might be a set-up, like when I done Rio’s World Cup merks, and I’m still captain. I’ve sussed it
3.21pm Won zip on Euromillions last night, but neither did @JTEnglandcaptain so that’s all good. He’s changed his Twitter name. I noticed that.
3.48pm Hey @Steven_Gerrard — he only got it cos we were crocked! @JTEnglandcaptain laughs at your voice.
3.49pm If @SirAlex was Wales boss, they wouldn’t dare go back to the dressing room at half time. He’s a proper manager.
4.05pm You know that week we spend at major tournaments and four matches we play there? That’s what we play for. I’m a born leader.
4.14pm I did Comic Relief. I’m a natural comedian, but not as funny as Wales’ defence.
4.25pm Sources saying I’ll soon have a cup of tea and turn over to the boat race. Play 442 until I’m back @Fabio_Boss. Ta.
4.57pm If I was @Gareth_Bale, I’d have seen my team, said my leg hurt and done one. But I wouldn’t, I’m a true leader.
