'Extreme' abuse shocks Ferdinand

Published Add your comment

QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has revealed he has been shocked by the "extreme" abuse he has been subjected to since his high-profile altercation with Chelsea skipper John Terry.

Ferdinand has been thrust into the spotlight following the incident in October, which has left Terry facing a court case on July 9 on allegations he racially abused the QPR defender. Terry, who was subsequently stripped of the England captaincy, denies the charges.

"Some of the abuse has been extreme, some of it has been very extreme and I'm thinking 'how can they even be giving me any stick?'," Ferdinand told various newspapers."But this is the world we live in. You have to deal with it and I deal with it by playing my football."
