thumbnail Hello,

Liverpool legend wants to stay involved in set-up...

England goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence has called for the nation's fans to get behind the team after their World Cup 2010 disaster.

Fabio Capello's side travelled to South Africa as one of the favourites to win the tournament but were dumped out of the competition in the second round after a 4-1 thumping from Germany.

This result followed a disappointing group stage performance, and on-going problems with tactics and player revelations.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Clemence asked the Three Lions support to keep faith in the team and look forward to the future.

"Obviously I was disappointed as everyone else is. But it's gone and we can't do anything about it now," Clemence said.

"We can look back now and ask if anything could have been done differently and those discussions are on going.

"No matter how poorly the fans think about it, certainly I feel as disappointed. At times it was difficult to understand but it's happened and we have to look forward."

Capello is rumoured to be prepared to shake-up the managerial staff after the recent debacle and Clemence's position was rumoured to be under threat from Italy legend Walter Zenga. The ex-England and Liverpool shot stopper is in no mood to relinquish his spot, however.

"I love being involved in the set-up, simple as that. I've been fortunate enough to play many times for England and I've been lucky enough to be working with the senior teams and younger teams for 15 years," Clemence said.

"There are frustrating times, but I still want to be involved as it's a special job. I, like every fan in the country, want this team to be successful."
