Chelsea boss Grant: Terry should keep England captaincy

Chelsea boss Avram Grant says John Terry should stay as England captain.

Terry's antics have come under close scrutiny in recent weeks but Chelsea manager Grant launched a passionate defence of his club skipper as he prepared for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash at Arsenal.

Grant said: "Capello would be stupid to think anyone else could be a better captain. If you ask the managers and coaches all over the world they would want a captain like John Terry.

"One of his strengths is off the pitch. You can see how he connects with the other players and what he does for children. I am here day to day with him and he is an excellent example to others. Judge John Terry on his actions. You will not find anything wrong."
