Spurs coach speaks on John Terry incident

White Hart Lane - Tottenham Hotspur Football News

Tottenham coach Les Ferdinand has called for John Terry to be banned if he is found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

Terry now faces an FA probe following the incident between QPR and Chelsea on Sunday.

He said: “If John Terry has said something he needs to come out and say it. If he hasn’t, let’s get it sorted and out of the way.”

Talking at last night’s Black List Awards, Sir Les added: “I was asked to look at it on the internet and I’ve seen what’s said — unfortunately you are not privy to the whole conversation.

“The FA, FIFA and UEFA have been in positions where they have been able to stamp out a few problems which have reared their ugly heads in the last few years and they haven’t done so or they haven’t done it diligently enough.

“When you look at the punishments dished out, it lets you know these people don’t think there is a racist problem in football.

“They need to make a statement. That means bans instead of fines — that’s the only way it’s going to work.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Racism is totally unacceptable in any walk of life but the truth is that it does go on and putting team mates in the position where they speak against a team mate isnt going to change anything, lets just suppose that Ashley cole did speak up and john terry did get a ban what then? He’s still employed by chelsea and so is Ashley and can you really see john terry saying fair cop? No is the short answer to that. The only

    Way that it stops is when the FA and the clubs that pay these players wages really say no and kick em out of the game altogether but that wont happen. Imagine if you racially abused someone in a normal place of work you’d be out the door. Nothing has been proven against John Terry but it will be interesting to see what Chelsea FC and the FA do if it is. Lillywhitetilidie

  2. Nice one Chris, it's good to see someone speaking in medeival English. Ye olde Chelsea boys should realise that John Terrye is a blaggard, this man has form, whether it's your team mate's girlfriend or a player of a different colour Mr T has verye old fashioned ideals. Not wanted in this day & age. Don't try to defend that behaviour. Now ye go farward and multiplye.

  3. THERE WILL BE NO SURPRISE IF TERRY IS FOUND GUILTY WE ALL KNOW THE MODERN DAY PLAYER DON`T COME FROM A CHURCH FEARING FAMILY THAT`S FOR SURE , AND EVEN IF THE PLAYER WAS INDEED A VERY NICE GUY WHOSE PARENTS WOULD BRING HIM UP NOT TO THINK THIS WAY , THE GAME ITS SELF IS A VERY UGLY EMPLOYMENT THEY HEAR FROM NO AGE THE JOKES THE BANTER THE FOUL LANGUAGE THAT GO`S HAND IN HAND WITH EVEN THE BOARD MEMBERS WHO CAN CRACK A JOKE OR TWO THE COACHES HAVE PROVEN OVER THE PAST AND HAVE INDEED BEEN SHOWN THE DOOR FOR THIS BEHAVIOUR , LOOK AT THE TV PERSONALITES WHO THINK THEY ARE UNTOUTCHABLE WE DON`T ALL WAYS HEAR THE FULL FACTS WHEN MANAGERS AND COACHES ETC GET THE BOOT THE REASON MAINLY BEING A FOOTBALL MATTER IF YOU BELIEVE THAT .

  4. Listen, absolutely nothing will be done against John Terry. Point one, he plays for Cheatski and money talks, point two, he plays for England and has in the past been their captain and is seen as an influential and important member of the first team, point three, the European Championship is just around the corner and the lilly livered FA will not do anything to undermine the status quo. It does not matter what John Terry does, get nicked in a night club, park his car where ever he wants to, f**k team mates wives, use racial abuse, he will always walk away scot free or as the innocent party when everyone knows or suspects that he is a low life creature from low life stock.

  5. How long will this talk of John Terry abusing Ferdinand racially go on? Why is Ferdinand selent about it all? Let Ferdinand speak up and allow the young man (JT) live his life free of harrasment. And if the pursuit of racial abuse thing is a ploy to disrupt the career of JT let us know, period!!!
