Harry Redknapp believes that the nation must back Fabio Capello in whatever decision he makes over John Terry’s captaincy.
The defender could lose his role as captain of England after allegations in his private life.
Redknapp said: “It’s up to Mr Capello to make a decision. It’s his call and whatever he does we have to back him because we all want the country to win the World Cup.”
He added: “I believe we can win it this time – we have a fantastic group of players and a great manager. It’s all in place and it’s the best chance we’ll ever have to win the World Cup.
“Whatever decision he makes, we have to get behind him and get behind the team and make sure we travel out to South Africa and do our best to win the World Cup.”
“You need the same qualities as an England captain that you do in your club captain,” Redknapp added.
“England are certainly not short of quality players but at the moment John Terry is the one and until the manager decides otherwise he is the captain of England.”
