Anton - the Penny Drops
West Ham manager Alan Curbishley believes that Anton Ferdinand has learned to be more disciplined off the pitch and is now focusing on his football.
“I think the penny dropped in the summer that football needed to be his number one priority and that everything else didn’t count for too much,” Curbishley said.
“Everyone knew the consequences if the verdict went against him. I think he’s hoping now to have a clean slate and a clear run at it. If that’s the case, I hope that football does become his number one priority because he has got so much ability that it could take him wherever he wants to go.”
