League Cup: Chelsea captain Terry's return inspires 6-0 win
LONDON (AFP) - John Terry showed no signs of being affected by his battle to clear his name over allegations he racially abused Anton Ferdinand as the Chelsea captain led his side to a 6-0 demolition of Wolves in the League Cup third round on Tuesday.
Terry was playing for the first time since the Football Association (FA) opened their disciplinary hearing into charges the defender aimed racist comments at Ferdinand during a Premier League match last October.
The 31-year-old spent the morning at Wembley, where the FA are holding their hearing, and then dashed across London in time to link up with his team-mates for the League Cup tie.
Terry, who on Sunday retired from England duty in protest at the FA's charges, was a virtual spectator as he was treated to his side's biggest win for almost 21 months thanks to goals from Gary Cahill, Ryan Bertrand, Juan Mata, Oriol Romeu, Fernando Torres and Victor Moses.
