BLATTER SPEAKS OUT OVER TERRY FURORE

Post by Admin on Thu Feb 11, 2010 8:26 pm

John Terry would have been applauded in some countries rather than
sacked as national team captain for having an alleged affair, according
to FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
Terry was fired by England head coach Fabio Capello after a week of
negative headlines about the defender's alleged affair with Wayne
Bridge's ex-partner but the Chelsea player has had support from an
unlikely quarter.
Blatter, in Vancouver for the International Olympic Committee's
session, joked that in "Latin" countries such as France, Italy and
Spain, Terry's conduct may not have been considered a problem.
Blatter said: "Listen, this is a special approach in the Anglo-Saxon
countries. If this had happened in let's say Latin countries then I
think he would have been applauded."
Terry was sacked by Capello after a brief meeting with the England manager last week.
The 29-year-old has now been given time off by Chelsea to address
the issues in his personal life and will miss his side's FA Cup tie
against Cardiff this weekend.
Chelsea assistant manager Ray Wilkins said: "He will not play this weekend. Carlo (Ancelotti) is giving him a bit of time off.
"They just had a little chat, John and Carlo, and decided that would be the best for all concerned."
