With John Terry being stripped of the England captaincy, former captain Rio Ferdinand has ruled out a return to his previous position.
Ferdinand took over when Terry was initially stripped in February 2010, but had the captaincy taken off him and handed back to Terry just over a year later.
This caused somewhat of a rift between Ferdinand and Capello and in ruling himself out of the running, he alluded to it.
Speaking on Twitter, Ferdinand announced:
“I don’t want to be england captain after the last episode, just want to concentrate on playin(sic) for utd & if I make the squad then as ever I’ll be delighted”
