Hodgson hopes Terry is cleared by FA

Published Add your comment

England manager Roy Hodgson has made the astonishing claim that he hopes the Football Association clears John Terry of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

Last month, Terry was found not guilty of a racially aggravated public order offence by Westminster Magistrates Court. However, since then, the FA have decided the Chelsea skipper has a case to answer under their own lesser burden of proof.

Hodgson has already declared an intention to select Terry unless he receives lengthy suspension and, when asked about his previous comments in an interview with Sky Sports News last Friday, he said: "I'm hoping, and I make no secret of that, the case will take its course, that John, hopefully, will be freed as he was freed in a court of law, and will carry on playing for England."
