Leading anti-racism campaigner Piara Powar has branded Roy Hodgson's intervention in the John Terry case as "foolish".

Ahead of Wednesday night's friendly with Italy in Berne, the England coach expressed support for Terry, who is currently the subject of an FA charge over comments made to Anton Ferdinand at Loftus Road last October. Terry has already been found not guilty of a racially aggravated public order offence by Westminster Magistrates Court

After Hodgson expressed the hope Chelsea's captain would also be cleared at an FA hearing, Powar, executive director of Football Against Racism, said: "Hodgson's comments on Terry are foolish. It is not helpful to the process the FA has undertaken in any way."
