LONDON - Chelsea skipper John Terry was shocked last night after his father was beaten up by Tottenham Hotspur fans.
Ted Terry, 56, suffered a serious head wound when the hooligans attacked him at a train station.
One thug with a blue and white Tottenham Hotspur scarf wrapped round his hand pushed Ted’s head into a metal post.
John Terry is “stunned and upset” by the attack, The Sun reports.
“Ted suffered a nasty wound to the back of his head that required a lot of stitches. He is upset he was attacked by so-called football fans purely because his son plays for a rival team. John is also very shocked about what has happened,” one family friend said.
Ted, now recovering at home in Chafford Hundred, Essex was targeted at Upminster station last Saturday by Spurs fans returning from their team’s 4-2 defeat at Bolton.
The hooligans are thought to have recognised Ted Terry because of publicity over his suspended sentence earlier this year for supplying cocaine.
Cops investigating the attack are being hampered because Ted has refused to give them a statement. (ANI)
