Terry appreciated Capello's support

Published Add your comment

John Terry has hailed Fabio Capello for backing him to the hilt during the England captaincy saga that led to the Italian's shock resignation.

Capello quit as manager last month after the Football Association stripped Terry of the armband ahead of his trial for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry denies any wrongdoing.

"Quite clearly, Fabio backed me," Terry said. "That comes from a relationship with myself and him, the relationship we built up. I stood for him on the football pitch, and he stood up for me off the pitch. I respect that from him, I respect him as a man and for what he did for me. Complete respect both ways."
