Warnock: AVB must back Terry

England skipper Terry was charged earlier this week with a

‘racially aggravated public order offence’ following an alleged

incident during Chelsea’s defeat at QPR in October. Terry, who has

been accused of using a racial slur towards QPR defender Anton

Ferdinand, is due to appear before West London Magistrates Court on

1 February. Villas-Boas has offered his full backing to the

centre-half and is confident Terry’s form will not be affected by

the situation. Warnock, who on Friday expressed his belief that

racism in English football is minimal, understands why Villas-Boas

is standing by his skipper. “I think you should support your player

until you know everything in writing and what the alleged offences

are,” said Warnock. “I don’t think you can do anything else because

that is what our justice system is all about. “At every club you

support your players the best you can whatever you think is right.”
