Chelsea boss Avram Grant insists John Terry must continue as England captain - because the Three Lions fall apart without him.

Fabio Capello has been confirmed as the next England boss and the Italian has as reputation for not tolerating egos or bad behaviour. Terry´s suitability for the captaincy has been called into question recently and there have been calls for his position to be reviewed when Capello takes over.

But Grant insists his club skipper remains the perfect choice to wear the armband for England. "When Fabio Capello comes here he will say what his strategy and tactics are," he said. "I´m sure John Terry is the best captain England can have."
