Assault charge for Anton

22 Nov 2006 - 14:17:20

West Ham United centre-back Anton Ferdinand has been charged with assault and violent disorder relating to an incident outside a London nightclub in October.

The 21-year-old will appear before magistrates on Friday, with his advisers issuing a statement to confirm that Ferdinand will plead his innocence.

The SEM group statement read: "We can confirm that Anton Ferdinand has been charged with assault.

"Anton looks forward to having the opportunity to explain in court the incident and nature of his actions on the night in question, October 2, 2006.

"He maintains his innocence and believes his actions were justified and that because of this, he believes he has not done anything wrong.

"At this stage we would ask the media to exercise restraint and allow him time to focus on his football.

"There will be no further statement at this time and Anton will keep the media informed on any developments in due course in so far as his legal advisors allow."
