Chelsea news – Terry to captain England? Torres reveals team-spirit, Lampard driving ban

Terry to captain England?

England Coach Fabio Capello could be about to make a stunning managerial U-turn this month by giving the captains armband back to Chelsea skipper John Terry according to The Sun.

The commanding centre-back was previously stripped of the armband due to his alleged affair with the ex-girlfriend of former teammate Wayne Bridge.

At that point Capello said that Terry would never captain the Three Lions again, but with both current captain Rio Ferdinand and vice-captain Steven Gerrard sidelined through injury the captaincy could be heading back to Terry for the Euro 2012 qualifier in Wales on the 26th of March.

Torres reveals team-spirit.

Spanish striker Fernando Torres has revealed that he thinks he has definitely made the correct choice with his £50m transfer deadline day move from Liverpool to Chelsea.

Although the forward is still to score for the Stamford Bridge side he says that he is now involved in a much friendlier and happier dressing room environment than at Anfield, according to ESPN.

“There are more personal relationships and jokes between the players than there were at Liverpool. Everything was much more serious there. Here, you don’t have to prove you are a professional – it is assumed.” said the 26-year-old World Cup winner. He also explained that the “chaos” of the boardroom changeover at Liverpool also influenced his decision to leave.

Lampard driving ban.

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been handed a 90 day driving ban for speeding, according the The Mirror.

The England star was clocked doing 91mph in his Range Rover in a 50mph zone on the A3 towards London.

The incident which took place in March 2010 resulted in Lampard admitting driving over the speed limit on the stretch of the A3 in Surrey and Staines Magistrates Court ruled the midfielder who was not present at the sentencing should serve a 90 day ban and pay an £850 fine along with £2300 in costs.
