Chelsea captain John Terry, has explained why he announced his shock retirement from international football, with immediate effect. The England defender, is clearly not pleased with the FA’s stance on his case of race abuse with Anton Ferdinand. Terry was cleared at Westminister Magistrates Court, but the FA hearing will begin this week.

Terry, who was stripped of the England captaincy, because of the case said. “I am making this statement today in advance of the hearing of the FA disciplinary charge because I feel the FA, in pursuing charges against me where I have already been cleared in a court of law, have made my position with the national team untenable.

“I now look forward to playing for Chelsea FC and challenging for domestic and European honours and I want to thank the fans and the club for their continued support.

“I would like to thank the England managers who have selected me for my 78 caps.

“I have had great pleasure in sharing that honour with all the players that I’ve played with.

“I would like to thank them, the fans and my family for their support and encouragement during my international career.

“Representing and captaining my country is what I dreamed of as a boy and it has been a truly great honour.

“I have always given my all and it breaks my heart to make this decision.

“I want to wish Roy (Hodgson) and the team every success for the future.”
