Posted By: Staff

London, Jan 31(ANI): England skipper John Terry must come clean on an explosive sex scandal to save himself from being stripped of the England captaincy.

According to reports, if Terry misleads Capello over his affair with team-mate Wayne Bridge's former partner, lingerie model Vanessa Perroncel, his position as captain could become untenable.

England's general manager Franco Baldini will speak with Terry face to face early this week and senior Football Association (FA) management are expecting a full explanation.The FA has till now refused to comment over the issue, but Terry is under intense pressure to resign. However, Capello wants to hear his version of events before deciding whether to sack him, News of The World reports.

Bridge has refused to accept Terry's calls and it means the skipper will be walking a tightrope as he attempts to negotiate the most difficult phase of his career.

Capello will also have meetings with the influential FA board over Terry's future, but chief executive Ian Watmore accepts that the ultimate decision rests with the Italian bossCapello will return to England on Thursday for discussions with Baldini over Terry's future role with the national team.
