It has been reported that after meeting England boss Fabio Capello earlier today, John Terry has been stripped of his England captaincy.
The Chelsea love rat’s indiscretions came to light after a judge overturned a gagging order, allowing the media to publish details of the sordid affair involving the former girlfriend of ex-Chelsea team-mate, England colleague and friend, Wayne Bridge.
City stars previously showed their backing for England full-back Bridge during the 2-0 win over Portsmouth donning ‘Team Bridge’ t-shirts, and with a number of players in and around the England set-up, it was hard to see how Terry could maintain any sort of respect in the dressing room.
According to SkySports News, the meeting with Capello only lasted 12 minutes while the Italian delivered the verdict on the man crowned ‘Dad of the Year’ by Daddies Sauce.
It has been suggested by a number of Sports sponsorship experts that like Tiger Woods before him, Terry looks set to lose out big time on future sponsorship deals.
