FA refute Terry assertion

The Football Association have denied making John Terry's position with England "untenable" following the Chelsea captain's shock decision to quit international football.

Terry announced on Sunday he was making himself unavailable for his country with immediate effect, on what was the eve of his FA racism hearing. The Chelsea captain effectively accused the FA of forcing his hand after they charged him over last October's altercation with QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

But despite the decision of Westminster Magistrates Court to clear Terry of a racially-aggravated public order offence over the same incident, FA general secretary Alex Horne hit back, telling Sky Sports News outside Wembley: "I don't see how we've made it untenable - they're two very separate processes."
