Rio Ferdinand Shocked By FA Charge

It has been revealed that Rio Ferdinand is shocked by his FA charge.

The Manchester United centre back has been left ‘dumbfounded’ by an FA charge over a tweet he made about Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole.

In the wake of John Terry’s racism trial, Ferdinand responded to a Twitter comment that referred to Cole as a “choc ice”.

A source told The Sun: “It is fair to say Rio is dumbfounded by this.

“He saw the tweet as a simple response to one of his followers rather than anything malicious and fears the FA is out of touch with modern-day social networking.”

Rio could be hit with a ban if he is found guilty of the improper conduct charge — although a £20,000 fine is more likely.
