Wolves fan racially abused Rio Ferdinand during Man United game

BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand

Ferdinand subject to racist abuse

Rio Ferdinand was subjected to racist abuse whilst working for BT Sport at Wolves’ stadium, Molineux. He tweeted what happened and said he would want to meet the person who did it.

Ferdinand then revealed to viewers what had happened.

“I’d love to meet up with the fella and just educate him a little bit. Punishing people without education isn’t the way forward,” said Ferdinand.

Wolves have since apologised and reiterated their stance against racism. They are aiming to ensure the fan is banned for life.

Ferdinand, Terry incident

This comes just mere days after John Terry’s interview with Henry Winter of the Sunday Times caused Rio’s brother Anton, who was found by the FA to have been racially abused by the former Chelsea defender, to tweet calling for a conversation with Terry.

Terry defended himself during the interview with Winter.

 “No, I’m not,” he said when asked if he was racist. “Racism is unacceptable. It’s been ten years now, then to see the documentary and being made to look the bad guy in there . . . It’s done. There’s a line in the sand drawn.

“Do I regret what happened? Anton can have his opinion. You’ll have yours. My opinion is very clear, I was not guilty in the court of law which is the biggest form of our law in our country. No higher.”

He concluded the interview saying that whilst he understood Anton Ferdinand had gone through some tough times, he had suffered as well.

“Yes. Of course,” he answered when asked if he had any sympathy for Anton. “He’s had some tough times but I’ve also had some tough times.”
