F.A. charges Terry with racial abuse


LONDON — Chelsea captain John Terry was charged by the English Football Association on Friday with racially abusing an opponent, two weeks after he was cleared by a court of the same offense.

The F.A. said it considered the evidence from the trial before charging Terry with directing abuse at Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match last October.

"I deny the charge, and I will be requesting the opportunity to attend the commission for a personal hearing," Terry said.

The F.A. alleged Terry "used abusive and-or insulting words and/or behavior . . . (and) included a reference to the ethnic origin and-or color and/or race of Anton Ferdinand."
