Man Utd's Ferdinand will not be taking England captain's armband

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand does not want to be considered as John Terry's replacement as England captain. Ferdinand did take over when Terry lost the captaincy two years ago but not this time.

Terry was stripped of the captaincy on Friday until after his July 9 court case where he is accused of racially abusing Ferdinand's brother Anton, who plays for QPR. Terry denies the charge.

Rio Ferdinand said on Twitter: "I don't want to be England captain after the last episode, just want to concentrate on playin for utd&if I make the squad then as ever I'll be delighted."
