Arsenal legend Wright: No winners in Terry case

Arsenal legend Ian Wright feels there's no winners from the racial abuse case against Chelsea captain John Terry thrown out by the courts yesterday.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "Regardless of the magistrate’s verdict, English football had found itself in a lose-lose situation.

"Yet another embarrassing week for everyone involved in the Premier League.

"John Terry, Anton Ferdinand and even Rio Ferdinand will all move on.

"They have to. They are professionals.

"I’m sure the players will all get stick from various sections of fans next season but, sadly, this is to be expected. This is the type of world we now live in.

"Terry was cleared of racially abusing Anton. Good luck to him.

"As a player, I have always admired him a lot. As a player, I will continue to admire him.

"Nevertheless, I hope he has learned from this sorry chapter."
