Capello to meet FA over Terry criticizm

Share This Story


England manager Fabio Capello is to meet FA bosses on Wednesday after openly questioning their decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy of the national side.


  • Who should be the next England captain?
    • Gareth Barry
    • Ashley Cole
    • Steven Gerrard
    • Joe Hart
    • Frank Lampard
    • Scott Parker

The FA decided the Chelsea defender could not lead England to Euro 2012 with the spectre of a trial for alleged racial abuse hanging over him.

Terry has been charged with abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand and, when his trial date was set for 9 July, the FA decided a new captain was required.

Terry categorically denies the charge and Capello feels he is innocent until proven otherwise and has taken to Italian TV to criticise the FA's decision.

He has vowed to include Terry in his squad for the Euros, captain or not, but first he must face FA chairman David Bernstein.
