Ferdinand wrote on Twitter: “The scenes on Sky news right now are shocking..what is this all in aid of?? Innocent peoples homes + livelihoods have gone up in smoke-why?” (sic)

“I can't sleep, I've got the news stations on watching the coverage of the riots. This is a madness.”

Teammate Wayne Rooney also tweeted of his concerns: “These riots are nuts why would people do this to there (sic) own country. Own city. This is embarrassing for our country. Stop please.”

At this point, no official announcement has been made about the Wembley clash, but FA officials will discuss the matter at a routine meeting with police on Tuesday.
