Ancelotti confident Terry's relationship with Capello not affected

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti does not believe that John Terry's relationship with England boss Fabio Capello will have been damaged by recent off-field controversies. Capello made the decision last Friday to strip Terry of the England captaincy and has replaced the central defender with Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand.

But Ancelotti, who has kept the centre-back as his skipper and will continue to do so at Everton on Wednesday, does not expect any prolonged difficulties.

"The team is not just John Terry, there are some other fantastic players.

"I think nothing changes in the relationship between Capello and John Terry."
