Ferdinand releases statement

Anton Ferdinand says he has "very strong feelings" on the John Terry racism allegations but does not wish to prejudice the Football Association inquiry.

• Ferdinand speaks of 'crazy' week
• FA to probe Terry incident
• Terry 'saddened' by claims

Terry has been accused of racially abusing QPR defender Ferdinand during Chelsea's recent 1-0 defeat at Loftus Road, and a complaint was subsequently lodged with the FA.

Ferdinand has now submitted his version of events to the FA but is declining to make public his opinion until the investigation is completed.

In a statement on the club's official website, Ferdinand said: "Today (Monday 31st October 2011) I finalised my statement with the Football Association with regards to the incident that occurred last Sunday at Loftus Road in our Barclays Premier League fixture against Chelsea.

"I have very strong feelings on the matter, but in the interests of fairness and not wishing to prejudice what I am sure will be a very thorough inquiry by the FA, this will be my last comment on the subject until the inquiry is concluded.

"I would like to thank the club, Tony Fernandes, Amit Bhatia, Neil Warnock, the supporters and my fellow professionals for their unwavering support."
