Hodgson dismayed at Terry decision

Published Add your comment

England manager Roy Hodgson has expressed his disappointment at John Terry's decision to quit international football.

Terry announced his international retirement on the eve of his Football Association disciplinary hearing on a racism charge with the Chelsea skipper claiming the case made his position with England "untenable".

The FA have denied that is the case, and Hodgson meanwhile said he was sorry to lose the services of Terry, one of his best players at Euro 2012. Hodgson said: "I'd like to thank John Terry for his commitment to the England team since I became manager. I am of course disappointed to lose a player of John's international experience and exceptional ability."
