FA strip John Terry of England Captaincy
John Terry has been stripped of the England Captaincy for the second time in his career.
The Chelsea skipper was summoned to FA Headquarters this morning to hear the result of the vote from the FA committee, which voted in favour of stripping him of the captain’s armband.
The FA have been forced into action, following the announcement that Terry will be going on trial in July to answer the charge of racial abuse – something that he pleaded not guilty to this week.
John Terry will now take the time to decide whether he wishes to carry on playing for his country – in light of the decision – and no doubt the FA’s ruling this morning may create a little friction between them and manager Fabio Capello, who planned to have Terry as his leader at the Euros.
