Terry’s defense questioned Ferdinand on “why he was so angry” in the match after the Chelsea player tried to win a penalty. Ferdinand said that made him angry because “I’m a winner” but added he is usually a “calm and collected player.”
This case, which is being heard by chief magistrate Howard Riddle, led to Terry losing the England captaincy he had regained after the 2010 affair allegations.
Fabio Capello quit as England coach in February when FA chiefs stripped Terry of the captaincy, although the defender was allowed to play at Euro 2012 under new coach Roy Hodgson.
