Curse a footballer's loins!

Monday, 1 February 2010 ·

Captain Courageous is now Captain Contradiction after the startling revelations surrounding John Terry's alleged affair with Wayne Bridge's ex-girlfriend, the French lingerie model, Vanessa Perroncel.  Reports suggest that Terry paid for the model to have an abortion after learning that she was pregnant with the married Chelsea skipper's child.
This news has come as quite a shock to Wayne Bridge, who has a son with Miss Perroncel, but some have suggested that it was this that soured the previously close relationship between the two England defenders.

Whilst this is a personal matter for Wayne Bridge, it does raise considerable doubts over the pedigree and character of the man who will lead England in this summer's World Cup in South Africa.  Terry's wife, Toni, has apparently asked for a divorce and there is currently a media frenzy demanding he be stripped of the captaincy for his supposed antics.  If this allegation is proven as true then John Terry should do the honourable thing and resign as England Captain instead of dragging this out and damaging the relationship he currently has with his team-mates. 
The matter now rests in the hands of Fabio Capello, who is reportedly monitoring the situation from Switzerland where he is currently recovering from knee surgery.

Poor Old Terry... Toni Terry that is. Regardless of the media scrutiny surrounding this debacle the question of whether such a man is fit to lead a team should be brought into question not simply whether or not this will damage the PR machine of the England team. Ethics should be the first and foremost consideration in this instance, not image.
