Prosecutors consider charges against England captain Terry
Friday 02 December 2011
Police have passed a file on John Terry's alleged racial slur towards Anton Ferdinand to prosecutors.
The Chelsea and England star has denied making the alleged comments to the Queens Park Rangers defender during a Barclays Premier League match at Loftus Road on 23 October.
The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed last night that it had received a file about the case from Scotland Yard and was considering whether there was enough evidence to bring charges.
Shortly after the allegations were made, Terry issued a statement saying: "I've seen that there's a lot of comments on the internet with regards to some video footage of me during the game.
"I'm disappointed that people have leapt to the wrong conclusions about the context of what I was seen to be saying to Anton Ferdinand.
"I would never say such a thing, and I'm saddened that people would think so."
