The Football Association is set to remove the England captaincy from John Terry, the BBC has learned.

FA chairman David Bernstein has spoken to board members and the majority view is Terry should be stood down. He would still be available for selection for the national team.

It would be the second time Terry, 31, has been stripped of the captaincy.
He is due to stand trial in July over racial abuse allegations after an incident with QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.

The Chelsea defender has entered a plea of not guilty to the charge.


With John Terry’s trial being moved until after the Euro 2012 finals the FA have been left with a decision to make with regards to the Stamford Bridge captain and they appear to be ready to take the England captaincy from the Chelsea centre back.

So who should replace him? Thoughts
