John Terry refuses ‘snap’ claims

John Terry has stated that he did not snap when confronting Anton Ferdinand in the notorious incident of reported racist abuse.

The Chelsea defender had his second day of court on Tuesday, and has claimed his innocence against the QPR man’s claims.

Terry has stated that Ferdinand made a quip about the England man’s personal life and supposed affair with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend.

Despite being questioned, Terry has stated that he did not snap when the Loftus Road centre-back taunted him over the affair.

“It was almost two years on and I had heard it a million times before,” Sky Sports record him as saying.

“If I was going to snap, I would have snapped long before.”

Terry has claimed that he was merely repeating what Ferdinand had mistakenly thought he had said, and has stuck to this train of thought.

“At the time I was shocked and angry. I had never been accused of it on a football pitch and repeated it back.

“Hindsight’s a wonderful thing. At the time I was shocked, I was angry, you can’t control your emotions,” he concluded.
