Terry requests personal hearing

ESPN staff

The Football Association has confirmed that Chelsea captain John Terry has requested a personal hearing over his racial abuse charge.

• Terry denies FA charge

Terry was found not guilty of a racially-aggravated public order offence at Westminster Magistrates' Court in relation to his alleged abuse of QPR defender Anton Ferdinand last season, but he could yet face FA sanctions.

A statement on the FA's website said: "John Terry has today denied an FA charge of using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour, which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race, towards Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand.

"The Chelsea player has requested a personal hearing, the date of which will be set in due course. During this period John Terry remains available to play for England."
