Villas-Boas will continue to support Chelsea skipper Terry

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas insists he will continue to back club captain John Terry.

The England skipper will find out today whether or not he will face legal action regarding his alleged racist remarks towards QPR's Anton Ferdinand and Villas-Boas has confirmed he will show support to his star defender.

"The only thing I know is that I will be fully supportive of John Terry, whatever the outcome," Villas-Boas said. "He has my full support, he has the club's full support.

"We know exactly his human values and personality. They are never in doubt.

"This is legal proceedings and I'm not in the right to say something done by justice is wrong," he added of the Crown Prosecution Service's decision which will come 24 hours prior to the Blues' meeting with Tottenham.

"If this is the timing they chose, this is the timing they thought was correct."
