Stamford Bridge captain intends to clear his name.
England captain John Terry will face a charge of using racist language towards fellow footballer Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match.
Mr Terry is alleged to have used racist language towards the 26-year-old Queens Park Rangers player during Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat at Loftus Road on 23 October.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said Mr Terry was accused of a racially aggravated public order offence.
The 31-year-old vowed to clear his name and said he was “disappointed”.
Police questioned the Chelsea captain under caution in November and a file on the matter was sent to the CPS at the beginning of December.
