Anton Ferdinand makes clever dig
Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand has had a cheeky dig at former England international captain John Terry after the Chelsea skipper’s father was accused of racial abuse in a pub.
And the younger brother of Manchester United defender Rio has posted a cheeky message of Twitter, where he posted a picture of the cover of The Game’s song ‘Like Father, Like Son’, telling his followers that it’s always nice to have his music on shuffle.
Ted Terry was arrested earlier in the year after a scuffle broke out between him and another man in a pub central London before being charged with two offences that were racially motivated a week back when he was answering his bail. Anton Ferdinand himself accused the former England international captain of racially abusing him during a Premier League match between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea at the club’s Loftus Road ground in October 2011.
Terry always maintained he was innocent of the charge labeled on him and was acquitted of any criminal offence after his case reached the magistrates. The verdict last year saw an end to a long drawn saga that led to the Chelsea skipper being stripped of his international captaincy by the FA which led the then national team boss Fabio Capello to resign and Terry soon announced his retirement from international football, and became a piece of football art.
The FA eventually banned him from four domestic games and fined £ 220,000 which also caused much furor among fans and media pundits as well as critics. A spokesperson for the Terrys stated that they are declining to comment as the charges have already been brought. This incident is another controversy in an already chequered career for terry which includes his arrest for a bar room brawl in 2002 and the controversy surrounding Anton Ferdinand last season.
