Fabio Capello has sacked John Terry as England captain because, so it seems, he has cheated on his England team mate, Wayne Bridge. Fortunately, the new captain, Rio Ferdinand, has a clean record as far as the dressing room is concerned.
It seems not to matter that Fredinand was banned for a year for drink driving, featured in a home made sex video with team mates Kieron Dyer and Frank Lampard, was banned from football for eight months for missing a drugs test (he forgot as he had “gone shopping”, apologised to gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell for calling Chris Moyles a ‘fagot’ on air, and was the organiser of a Manchester United Christmas Party that ended with allegations of rape and sexual harassment against another player (who was later cleared).
But at least he didn’t do the dirty on an England team mate. Rio is the man charged to lead England in the World Cup and to be a role model for millions of young boys and men. Women across the nation must be so relieved.
