Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand Blasts John Terry? Daily Mail Guns For Chelsea Captain

by | 29th, October 2011

THE Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday continue their pursuit of Chelsea’s John Terry, part of a vengeful media looking to get their own back on aman who, allegedly, tried to silence them with a super-injunction. The lead back page story screams:

RIO: I BELIEVE IT WAS RACIST

Well, John Terry has admitted to using the words “fu**ing black c**t” in the vicinity of QPR’s Anton Ferdinand, Rio’s younger brother. The Chelsea and England captain claims there was no racial intent. Terry maintains his innocence.

But the Mail’s headline seems to suggest that Rio Ferdinand thinks Terry is not being honest. But Rio said no such thing. The story below the disingenuous headline reports that Rio “believes” the language was “blantantly racist“. But he does not call Terry a racist.

What is the Mail’s point? The facts are not all established, the FA is dealing with it and yet the tabloid wants to stir the pot.

And this from the paper that said racism was no big deal
