John Terry acknowledges that he's not "everybody's cup of tea" and his reappointment as England captain is unpopular with some people.
The Chelsea defender was stripped of the captaincy in February 2010 after allegations he had an affair with teammate Wayne Bridge's former girlfriend. Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand took over as captain.
With Ferdinand out injured, England coach Fabio Capello has given the captaincy back to Terry for Saturday's European championship qualifier against Wales.
Terry told reporters on Tuesday that "I'm not going to be everybody's cup of tea as I've read and I've seen, but it was the manager's decision."
Of his loss of the captaincy last year, Terry says "I accepted the decision, it didn't mean I agreed with it."
