Arsenal legend Wright: Chelsea's Terry faces life sentence if guilty

Arsenal legend Ian Wright feels Chelsea skipper John Terry faces a lifetime sentence if he is found guilty of racial abuse. Wright wrote in his column for The Sun: "Only Terry himself knows exactly what was said and in what context.

"What I do know is that, if Terry was proved to be guilty of hurling racist abuse, then his real punishment would come when he goes back to the Chelsea training ground.

"That's when he would have to look into the eyes of team-mates like Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole, Daniel Sturridge, John Obi Mikel, Florent Malouda, Salomon Kalou, Ramires, Jose Bosingwa, Nicolas Anelka, Michael Essien and Co.

"He's their captain, their leader and the feeling would not be pleasant for him. I'm sure there are a lot of black players who he's respected and only JT himself fully knows what was said.

"But if he's guilty, I can guarantee he will be punished for life - he will never, ever get over it. What more punishment would he need than that?"
