Terry: I'm not everyone's cup of tea

John Terry admitted on Tuesday that he was "not everyone's cup of tea" after being reinstated as England captain but insisted he had the backing of the whole squad. England boss Fabio Capello took the controversial decision to reinstate the Chelsea defender last week in place of the injured Rio Ferdinand, just over a year after he was stripped of the armband following allegations of an affair with the ex-girlfriend of then international team-mate Wayne Bridge. "I'm not going to be everybody's cup of tea, but it is the decision the manager has taken," Terry said. "Respect for the players around me and the manager has always been there. "When the manager confronted the team on the training pitch (on Tuesday morning to tell them of Terry's reinstatement), he asked the players if they had any questions and nobody spoke. Nobody said a word to the manager, nobody said a word to me."
