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.


The FA will not conclude it’s investigation and will sit to discuss possible punishments to hand the England and Chelsea captain. Luis Suarez was found guilty of a similar offence and was handed an eight match ban yesterday.
