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."
