The dream of a dream-come-true has been put on hold by Ricky Scott, according to the frontman of rock band, The Who.
In an interview with L’Equipe, Scott said he had been asked to join the Dream Team for the first time by the club’s president, Carlo Scannone, and had to refuse.
“I am not going to do it,” he said.
“The dream has already come true, but it’s not a dream that has come true for me.
I can’t be part of a team that is not going in the right direction.”
Scott, who has recently suffered a knee injury, did not specify whether the team was in the Champions League, but his comments suggest he is hoping to take part in the Dream Championship, which will be held in Brazil in February 2018.
“It would be fantastic for the club, for the country, and for the fans, to be able to put this dream to rest,” he added.
“But, as a footballer, I would be sad if I didn’t take part.”
Scott also confirmed he will be missing out on playing in the DREAM Championship and will return to England for the second half of the season.
“When the time comes to take my first step into the future, it will be a long, long time,” he told L’equipe.
If I can still play in the Europa League, I can do it.”
