Cole defends race charge Terry

Next Story

England footballer John Terry should not have been taken to court over racism claims, team mate Ashley Cole has said.

Chelsea defender Terry, 31, is accused of calling QPR player 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 that he was sarcastically repeating the slur that Ferdinand mistakenly thought he had used.
