Chelsea boss ducks Terry issue

CHELSEA manager Andre Villas-Boas would not answer questions about England captain John Terry after his side's Carling Cup win at Everton last night.

A club official told media not to ask about the ongoing situation involving the club skipper at the post-match press conference for fear it could prejudice an ongoing Football Association investigation.

The governing body are currently looking into allegations that Terry racially abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during a controversial Premier League match at Loftus Road last weekend.

London police are also looking into the matter following an anonymous complaint from a member of the public.
