When Roy Hodgson was made England manager, one of the first jobs he had was to decide what to do about the John Terry affair. Terry had racially abused Rio Ferdinand`s brother, Anton, in a match between QPR and Chelsea. He was subsequently charged by the Crown Prosecution Service, but found not guilty by a magistrate’s court. One of the reasons for this verdict was the narrow nature of the charges brought against Terry. All that left Hodgson with a dilemma. Should he pick both Rio Ferdinand and terry, in the knowledge that there was real friction between them? In the end, and as it turned out incorrectly, he chose Terry.
