    OFFICIAL: John Terry Dropped As England Captain; Rio Ferdinand To Take Over

    Post by Admin on Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:15 pm



    John Terry has been stripped of the England captaincy after a showdown meeting with Fabio Capello.

    The
    Italian met Terry at Wembley on Friday and told the defender his role
    as captain of the Three Lions was over, following relevations of an
    alleged affair with an ex-girlfriend of former-Chelsea team-mate Wayne
    Bridge.

    "After much thought, I have made the decision that it
    will be best for me to take the captaincy away from John Terry,"
    Capello said via a statement on the FA's website.

    "As a captain
    with the team, John Terry has displayed extremely positive behaviour.
    However, I have to take into account other considerations and what is
    best for all of the England squad.

    "What is best for all of the England team has inspired my choice.

    "John Terry was notified first."

    Capello hinted that vice-captain Rio Ferdinand will step into the role, following a brief 12-minute meeting with Chelsea defender Terry.

    “When
    I chose John Terry as captain, I also selected a vice-captain and also
    named a third choice," he added. "There is no reason to change this
    decision.

    “I would like to take this opportunity to thank The
    FA, particularly Lord David Triesman and Ian Watmore for allowing me to
    make this decision in my own time and in the best interest of the team.”http://www.goalstalk.com/post.forum?mode=newtopic&f=6

    Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti had previously said Terry's position as captain of the Blues would not be affected.

    So Is Rio Ferdinand The Right England Captain?

    Was this really that much of a shock?
    the way hes acted is a disgrace to the armband
    sure people will say about Ferdinand missing the drug test and getting band for like 6months
    but that could have easily been a mistake but Terry is a disgrace

    I fully agree.

    Chelsea should sack him, if they don't they I will be very angry as it's much worse than the Mutu case in 2004, I believe, and it shouldn't be tolerated. It not only affects himself (unlike Mutu's case) but has affected his teammate, Bridge, and all, especially with the fact that he's usually England's captain as well as Chelsea's.
