The FA statement on charging John Terry

::After seeking advice from an external
Independent QC, and having considered the
evidence and Magistrates' Court decision in the
John Terry case, The FA has today charged the
Chelsea player following an alleged incident
that occurred during the Queens Park Rangers
versus Chelsea fixture at Loftus Road on 23
October 2011.
It is alleged that Terry used abusive and/or
insulting words and/or behaviour towards
Queens Park Rangers’ Anton Ferdinand, contrary
to FA rules.
It is further alleged that this included a
reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/
or race of Anton Ferdinand.
This charge is the result of The FA’s long-
standing enquiries into this matter, which were
placed on hold pending the outcome of the
criminal trial, and relates to rules governing
football only.
During this period John Terry remains available
to play for England.
Terry has until 3 August 2012 to respond.
The FA will make no further comment during
this time.::
