Italian not happy with decision.
Fabio Capello disagrees with FA over Terry captaincy decision
England coach Fabio Capello says he disagrees with the Football Association’s decision to strip John Terry of the national team’s captaincy.
Terry, 31, was removed as captain pending his trial in July over alleged racial abuse of QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.
Capello told Italy’s state broadcaster RAI he “absolutely” does not agree with FA chairman David Bernstein’s decision.
“I thought it was right that Terry should keep the captain’s armband,” said the 65-year-old Italian.
“I have spoken to the [FA] chairman and I have said that in my opinion one cannot be punished until it is official and the court – a non-sport court, a civil court – had made a decision to decide if John Terry has done what he is accused of.”

This public display of dissatisfaction may not go down too well with the bigwigs at the FA but clearly the Italian is not the type of keep his thoughts to himself.
One wonders what will happen going forward as Fabio Capello clearly still sees John Terry as his captain and the England boss may not be willing to name a replacement or could possibly name a replacement and still treat the Chelsea man as his skipper.
