London, Apr 22(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his ire over Wayne Rooney's inclusion in Great Britain Olympic football squad, though manager Stuart Pearce has promised that no one will play at both the European Championship and the London Olympics.
Rooney is among ten United players on Pearce's list of 80 for London, and this has maddened Ferguson.
Ferguson has said that with many Premier League players expected to be involved in the Games, the clubs' preparations for the new season, which starts only seven days after the Olympic final in London on August 11, will be reduced to 'absolute chaos'.
'It's ridiculous, utter chaos," The Daily Mail quoted Ferguson, who will also be losing players to the FA for the European Under-19 Championship, as saying.
"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," he added.
Ferguson's fury has been aggravated by Pearce's obvious desire to keep all his options open for the Olympic tournament, despite confirming in December, and the fact that he would be losing majority of his players before the actual season kicks off.
"We've got 10 players nominated [for the GB Olympics team] as well as David De Gea and Javier Hernandez. It's serious," Ferguson said.
"This is the start of the season we're talking about. We'll be left with only one senior goalkeeper because Ben Amos has been nominated by Team GB and De Gea will be at the Olympics with Spain," he added.
"The FA might also want five of our players for a European Under-19 tournament. We were intending to take them on pre-season tour. It's absolute chaos," he said. (ANI)
