Chelsea captain John Terry has defined irony by writing an anti-racism message in the programme for today’s Premier League game against Burnley.
Terry, who was handed a four-match ban after being found guilty by an FA hearing of using racially abusive language towards Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand, addressed the Paris Metro incident in the notes.
Today’s clash with Clarets was assigned as the club’s annual Game for Equality before Chelsea fans were involved in the racist incident in the French capital in midweek.
Terry wrote: “This is out annual Game for Equality, when we show that this club stands against all forms of discrimination.
“Football is a sport for everyone, that is one of the main reasons why we love it, and what happened on the Paris Metro on Tuesday was unacceptable.”
