Capello bans players from talking about Terry scandalMarch 2nd, 2010 - 2:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 2 (ANI): England manager Fabio Capello has banned players from talking about the John Terry scandal.
The Italian manager told players it was time to move on and focus on winning the World Cup in South Africa.
Capello fears the scandal will tear the team apart. Several players are said to blame Terry after Wayne Bridge quit the squad last week, The Sun reports.
An England insider said: “Fabio called everyone for a ten-minute chat. Splits in the camp would be a disaster. Players were told to see him if they have a problem. He doesn’t want any whispering in corners.”
Chelsea star Terry reported for England duty yesterday for the first time since he lost the captaincy over his affair with Bridge’s ex Vanessa Perroncel.
Ace striker Wayne Rooney yesterday urged fans not to boo Terry during England’s friendly against Egypt at Wembley tomorrow. (ANI)
