Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says Chelsea captain John Terry remains a strong leader in the England dressing room.

Despite his recent dip in form, Fabio Capello has made it clear he has no intention of leaving the Chelsea skipper out of his squad, with Rooney confirming it has been business as usual so far this week.

"John Terry is a great captain and a great leader," he said.

"Whether he has the armband or not he will still be a great leader for us at the World Cup.

"Rio Ferdinand has obviously captained Manchester United to Champions League success and Steven Gerrard has done the same at Liverpool.

"We have some great captains in the team and I don't think we will be short."
