John Terry said that he was "keen" to speak to police about alleged racist abuse because "I knew there was nothing out there that would show that I had done anything wrong".
The 31-year-old England and Chelsea defender is accused of calling Anton Ferdinand a "f****** black c***" during a Premier League game on October 23 last year.
He denies a racially aggravated public order offence, saying he was sarcastically repeating the slur that Ferdinand mistakenly thought he had used.
