Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has said that former England manager Fabio Capello will be a tough act to follow given his stature and the understanding of the game.
Fabio Capello resigned from his England job in one of the most surprising events at the start of the New Year. Capello has been at loggerheads with the English Football Association ever since announcing that they were wrong in their decision to remove John Terry of the captain’s armband.
Chelsea defender John Terry has been accused of racially abusing QPR defender and fellow England teammate Anton Ferdinand earlier on in the season. As a result, John Terry has been subject to a trial, which has been postponed to the first week of July.
Due to the ongoing court case, the English football Association decided to remove the captain’s armband from John Terry. This is the second time the captain’s armband has been removed from John Terry. It was Fabio Capello who did that in the first instance, but the Italian came in support of John Terry by saying that the FA should consider reinstating him due to the fact that allegations against him have not been proven. However, after a heated argument with the FA officials, Fabio Capello handed over his resignation.
