Ferdinand speaks out
QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has spoken out against those who have criticised him in the wake of John Terry’s guilty verdict in his racial abuse hearing.
Terry was banned for four games and fined £220,000 by an independent Football Association panel after being found guilty of racially abusing Ferdinand during a Premier League match at Loftus Road in October 2011.
Ferdinand took to Twitter to hit out at those who have abused him via the social media website, declaring: “Footage don’t lie.”
“On a serious note people need 2 read the facts before they send stupid tweets 2 me with liar and grass in it footage don’t lie,” he tweeted.
Terry was cleared by Westminster Magistrates Court of using racist language against Ferdinand but the FA decided to press ahead with their own case, leading him to announce his international retirement.by: Michelle, September 28, 2012
