QPR manager Neil Warnock has said that Anton Ferdinand has just fled his home after receiving a number of deaths from angry Chelsea supporters. A confrontation has been going on between QPR defender Anton Ferdinand and Chelsea captain John Terry over alleged racism.
It is thought that John Terry provoked Anton Ferdinand with racist abuse during their 1-0 win a few months ago. The FA and the London police have charged John Terry regarding this issue, but it seems that Chelsea fans recognise that John Terry has done no wrong. Anton Ferdinand has been receiving death threats on Twitter, but it has been taken to another new level after the former Sunderland star had to leave his home in order to protect himself.
Chelsea lost the match 1-0 and there were some high tensions during the match. Chelsea had seven players booked and two players sent off in the match. Even though there has not been any official evidence showing John Terry racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, the former Sunderland defender has said that John Terry did abuse him racially. John Terry seems to have recovered from the issue since then, as he has been playing regularly. However, Anton Ferdinand has not been able to do the same for QPR, as many regard him to have cheated in this issue.
“He’s had a lot on his plate, really. You never know how things like this affect people. Before the [Manchester] City game, he had to move out of his house at 8pm – so that was not a good preparation for him. There were all sorts of things going on behind the scenes. I felt sorry for him,” QPR manager Neil Warnock said regarding the predicament faced by Anton Ferdinand over the alleged racist abuse from John Terry.
