Mourinho, Ancelotti among character witnesses for Chelsea captain Terry

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is among big name character witnesses over his trial for allegedly using racist language towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

The Daily Mail says Terry's one-time Chelsea bosses Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti, now at Paris Saint-Germain, and the England captain's ex-Stamford Bridge team-mate Marcel Desailly are giving witness statements claiming they have no knowledge of him ever behaving in a racist way.

Ancelotti and Desailly have already sent in their signed documents, with Mourinho's agreed statement just awaiting his signature.

The three key witnesses have indicated they are prepared to appear in court if called by Terry's defence team.
