John Terry cleared of racism allegations

Chelsea captain John Terry has been cleared of racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand.

The Chelsea and England defender had denied making the comments to the Queens Park Rangers player during a match at Loftus Road last October.

The case led to Terry being stripped of the England captaincy by the English Football Association ahead of the European Championship and the departure of coach Fabio Capello who disagreed with the decision.

Terry was charged after he was seen mouthing the words ‘f****** black c***’ in Ferdinand’s direction during Chelsea’s defeat against QPR at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.
