Terry Sacked Over Indiscretions In the Sack

Terry Sacked Over Indiscretions In the Sack



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.

The Guardian stated earlier today that Umbro have refused to comment on its £4m endorsement deal with Terry. It remains to be seen what repercussions will follow this latest turn of events.

Stevie G should always have got the captains armband anyway, but now im thinking maybe rooney should be captain. his aggression and desire to win would be a real lift for the whole england setup.

So we replace a love rat with a guy who beat up a bloke in a pug because the music was too loud?!? How about Rio (drugs test fiasco)? Ashley Cole (love rat?)? Joe Cole (play boy)... Oh give it to Carrick and ruin our world cup chances.
