Terry's fate in Capello's hands

LONDON, February 2 – England manager Fabio Capello alone will make a decision on John Terry's future as England captain, the Football Association (FA) said on Monday.
The 29-year-old Chelsea defender’s position has been called into question following reports the married father of twins had an affair with the ex-girlfriend of former team-mate Wayne Bridge.

There are now concerns the issue could have a damaging effect on England’s bid to win the World Cup in South Africa later this year but the FA were adamant they would leave the matter to Capello.

"Fabio Capello alone will make the decision about John Terry’s position," said an FA spokesman.

"Fabio is fully up to speed with developments regarding John Terry.

"He spoke with our chairman Lord (David) Triesman and chief executive Ian Watmore today (Monday), who both backed him to make the best decision for England on footballing grounds.

"Fabio is dealing with the matter in his own way using his extensive experience as a football manager."

Capello is due to return to England later this week and will travel to Warsaw for the Euro 2012 qualifying competition draw this weekend
