England boss Capello to make Terry announcement Friday

England boss Fabio Capello is expected to make an announcement on John Terry's captaincy on Friday.

Capello is considering the options available to him following newspaper allegations that the Chelsea skipper had an affair with the former partner of international team-mate Wayne Bridge.

Capello is understood to be keen to have the issue settled before he travels to Warsaw for the Euro 2012 qualifying draw this weekend.

He has asked his assistant Franco Baldini, who is more fluent in English than Capello, to handle the situation and to keep in touch with 29-year-old Terry.

When Capello returns to England on Thursday - he was due to have an appointment today with a consultant in Switzerland about his recent knee surgery - he will then assess the situation and a decision is likely to be announced on Friday.
