Manager Avram Grant has rejected speculation over John Terry´s future as England captain by claiming his conduct at Chelsea is impeccable.

Terry´s suitability for the role has been called into question amid criticism over his hounding of referees and behaviour off the pitch.

But Grant has been impressed by Terry´s leadership, especially during the upheaval that ensued in the wake of Jose Mourinho´s exit in September, saying: "If you ask the coaches and managers all over the world if they want a captain like John Terry, they will say yes. John is a great captain on the pitch, off the pitch, 24 hours a day."
