Capello aware of off-field controversy for Chelsea's Terry

England boss Fabio Capello admits he has considered the off-field behaviour of Chelsea captain John Terry over his future leadership possibilities with the Three Lions.

Asked if he felt he had treated the Chelsea skipper fairly, Capello said: "I have choices to make. I am running my own tests. And I will make my choice based on my ideas. The important thing is that everybody plays for England at the top of their game and as relaxed as they are for their clubs."

Had Terry's off-the-field conduct disturbed him? In particular the story of Terry leaving his Bentley in a disabled parking space? "It is life," he said. "It is a mistake he made. But it is not something I get angry about.

"We will see what happens at the end of next month. There are two more games, against the U.S.A. and Trinidad and Tobago, before I decide on my captain for the World Cup qualifying campaign."
