Fabio Capello criticises FA's sacking of John Terry

The former England manager, Fabio Capello, criticised the Football Association's decision to sack John Terry as England captain before a trial over allegations he racially abused a fellow player, in an interview for Italian television on Sunday.

Speaking to RAI, he said that "civil justice, not sports justice" should determine the player's guilt.

Mr Capello resigned on Wednesday, following a meeting with FA chairman David Bernstein and general secretary Alex Horne at Wembley.
