Weltnachrichten – GB – Anton Ferdinand on football, racism and me

. .

In October 2011 a complaint was filed against John Terry for calling Anton Ferdinand « f ****** black c * ». ** ”during a television game on Loftus Road between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea.

This resulted in criminal charges of racist language against then-English Captain Terry.

In court, battle lines have been drawn between those who support Chelsea defender, including teammate Ashley Cole, who testified on his behalf, and those who support Anton, including his brother (and Terry’s English teammate) Rio.

Although Terry was eventually acquitted in a criminal court, he was found guilty three months later by an FA commission operating on less of a burden of proof than a criminal court. He was suspended for four games and fined £ 220. 000 occupied.

Even so, Terry and Chelsea were still being condemned by the media – the player who didn’t apologize directly and personally to Anton and the club who only punished Terry and didn’t rob him of his captain if they got a « zero -Tolerance « approach against racism.

In some ways, Anton was the person who paid the highest price in the episode. After that infamous spit, he would be playing in the Premier League little more than a year.

After the independent FA commission found Terry guilty in September of the following year, Anton would only play nine more Premier League games.

Four months later, in January 2013, at the age of just 27, he traveled to Turkey before signing to play professionally in Thailand and eventually returned to the UK, where he started his career at Reading, Southend United and finally St. Mirren.

Since the incident, 35-year-old Anton, who retired from the game, has been exposed to online abuse that has affected not only his own mental health and career, but the lives of loved ones as well.

In this deeply personal documentary, he reveals what it was like to be unwittingly at the center of a soccer power struggle and what it felt like to be informed by a court that he had not been televised and then racially abused was the FA that he had? Not only does Anton relive the remarkable test, but he tries to answer broader questions about the breed in the game.

He investigates the Black Lives Matter movement in football, investigates the rise in reported cases of racial abuse, finds that players have still failed the system, and explains how the sport needs to change urgently.

Anton Ferdinand: Football, Racism, and I are part of a series of programs the BBC is working on in connection with racist abuse in football.

Last month, BBC Three’s Shame In The Game explored the theme of English football from grassroots to Premier League.

« Racism is still a big issue in football and there were numerous incidents on and off the field during the filming alone, » he says.

“I hope that by sharing my personal experiences with racism, I can help people understand this issue better.

The aftershock of the Ferdinand v Terry case has ravaged the English game for years and this generation of players still feels bad. On one side of the chasm there is Rio and Anton and on the other Terry and Cole.

Rio and Ashley are both TV experts now, albeit for different broadcasters, and you couldn’t imagine them in the same studio unless something fundamental was resolved between the two.

Terry is currently working on his coaching career with Dean Smith in Aston Villa. However, the forgotten person of the whole sad affair was Anton. His life has been affected more than any other – and he will finally have his say.
