England coach Fabio Capello plans to drop captain John Terry for Saturday's friendly against world champion Spain, but stressed the defender retains his support during a police investigation into alleged racism.
Capello has assured Terry that he will return against Sweden four days after England hosts Spain, but his accuser's brother, Rio Ferdinand, will not be in the squad for the doubleheader when it is named on Sunday.
Capello said: "I know the value of John Terry, but I want to check the value of the other players (against Spain)."
While not commenting on Terry's alleged racial slur against Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand, Capello claimed his experience in English football had shown "racist problems between the players do not exist."
