Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has backed Fabio Capello in the row over John Terry being stripped of the England captaincy and insisted the Italian had every right to make his unhappiness known.

Capello told Italian TV that he "absolutely" disagreed with the action by the Football Association.

The FA announced on Friday their decision to remove the armband from Terry until the outcome of his court case in July where the Chelsea defender denies a charge of racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand. Villas-Boas said: "He has the right to his opinion and to share that defence with the player."
