Terry was stripped of the national team armband last week after his trial regarding the alleged racial abuse of Anton Ferdinand was set for after Euro 2012.

Capello revealed over the weekend that he disagreed with the FA's decision and had informed chairman David Bernstein of his views.

The Italian also confirmed he still perceives Terry to be his skipper and that the centre-half is innocent until proven otherwise.

He is now due to meet with Bernstein, amid reports that the FA chairman is unhappy with Capello's public questioning of the decision.

The FA is expected to ask Capello to explain his comments and there is speculation that the situation could even lead to the coach's departure before Euro 2012.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "There has to be some communication regarding the issue. I know Fabio has been abroad but he's back now so the next few days should reveal everything.

"It's a difficult situation for both sides. When you are the manager of a team and have a captain that is an important part of that team, then you don't want to lose him, so I can understand there's a lot of discussion and controversy about it."

Is Fabio Capello still the best man to manage England at Euro 2012?
