England and Chelsea captain John Terry is now facing prosecution over allegations that he made a racist comment towards Queen Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.
The 30-year-old will appear in court on February 1st of next year.
A Chelsea statement said: "John has made it clear he denies the charge and is determined to do all he can to prove his innocence.
"Chelsea FC has always been fully supportive of John in this matter and will continue to be so.
"The club finds all forms of discrimination abhorrent and we are proud of the work we undertake campaigning on this important issue."
