Capello Furious After Terry Stripped of Captaincy, Mirror Says

Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- England manager Fabio Capello is furious with the Football Association’s decision to strip John Terry of the national team captaincy, the Daily Mirror said.

The F.A. yesterday dropped Terry from the role until allegations of racial abuse against him are resolved.

Capello fought for the Chelsea defender to remain as captain and only accepted the F.A.’s decision with extreme reluctance, the Mirror said. He even reviewed his contract to see if he had the right to veto the move, the newspaper said.

Terry stands trial July 9 on a charge of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in an October match. He has denied the allegation and his lawyers pleaded not guilty on his behalf three days ago in London criminal court.
