Terry Lashes Out At Shearer

John Terry has added fuel to the flames that are already eating away at the FA's latest scheme, England FC. When manager Alan Shearer picked Wayne Rooney for the captaincy over Terry he went straight to twitter to convey his disappointment, describing the decision as 'discrimination' due to his recent injury in training.

In the tweets JT makes the alarming claim that his feud with the England manager isn't over after suggesting that the newly appointed captain, Rooney, isn't ready to take the lead yet. Despite the England camp warning Terry to show some discretion it looks as if the former skipper wants to carry on this very public debate.

We spoke to Alan Shearer to get the clubs official view on the matter:
Alan Shearer:
Naturally John was my first choice for captain. His experience is second to none and he has proven time and time again, over a number of years, that he is capable of leading a team in any circumstances. However, that all said, we did need to look elsewhere as we simply couldn't afford to have an injured captain at the start of the season at such a critical time in the clubs formative months. It was, therefore, my decision to appoint Rooney as the captain and hope that John would be professional enough to accept the vice-captaincy in place of his prior role. Frankly I'm disappointed that it has come to this, we have discussed this with him and he seemed at peace with the decision but apparently that was just a short-lived acceptance. It is my sincere hope that he can let go of his anger and concentrate on his rehabilitation because there is still a very important place for him at this club.

There has yet to be any further word from the Terry camp but one thing is certain; a rift has developed in the England FC camp already and there hasn't even been a competitive ball kicked. Does this bode ill for the scheme the FA hoped would save English football or is this just the first bump on the road to success?
John Terry needs to stick his head back up his a**e
