John Terry Being Investigated For Racial Abuse

Following Chelsea’s recent clash with QRR, John Terry is being investigated by the FA for the alleged use of racist language towards Anton Ferdinand. Ferdinand has been offered the full backing of his club, Queens Park Rangers during the proceedings.

The FA is in the process of trying toascertain what really occurred on the edge of the Queens Park Rangers penalty area five minutes from time. QPR won the match 1-0.

Terry did not travelled with the rest of the Chelsea squad for the Carling Cup clash with Everton due to four yellow cards, and another caution would see him suspended for the Premier League game against Arsenal on Saturday.

John Terry is also the current England Captain. The FA could have chosen to force coach Fabio Capello to remove Terry’s team captain armband.

However the FA will take no action until after the result of their investigation into the incident in the game between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea is decided.

”I welcome the FA enquiry and look forward to clearing my name as soon as possible. Until then I have no further comment,” said Terry.

If Terry, who turns 31 in December, is charged and subsequently found guilty of racial abuse against Ferdinand he would be certain to lose the England.

A QPR statement read: ”The club is aware of an alleged racist incident in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League fixture between QPR and Chelsea at Loftus Road. The Football Association are now expected to conduct enquiries into the alleged incident.”

Chairman Tony Fernandes said: “Queens Park Rangers Football Club does not condone racism in any way, shape or form. As a club, we will provide our players with our unequivocal support when alleged incidents like this occur.

“The club has, and will continue to, support Kick It Out’s One Game, One Community initiative, football’s equality and inclusion campaign. However, we are keen to draw a line under this alleged incident and focus on our forthcoming fixtures, starting with Sunday’s London derby at Spurs. The club will be making no further comment at this stage.”
