Fifa president Sepp Blatter has claimed that in some countries, John Terry would have been hailed, rather than sacked as national team captain for having an alleged affair.

Terry was stripped of the England captaincy by coach Fabio Capello last week, following the revelations of a supposed affair between the defender and the ex-partner of his former Chelsea team-mate, Wayne Bridge.

Speaking in Vancouver, Blatter described the response and reaction to Terry as being particularly “Anglo-Saxon” and claimed that in countries such as France, Italy and Spain, it would not have attracted so much attention.

“Listen, this is a special approach in the Anglo-Saxon countries,” he said. “If this had happened in let’s say Latin countries then I think he would have been applauded.”
