John Terry, the Chelsea and England football captain, is to be disciplined by the Football Association for his part in the disgraceful scenes at Old Trafford last weekend, following the sending off of Mikel Jon Obi.
Terry, who is always at the forefront of any complaint, stormed towards referee Mike Dean and, according to several distraught Manchester United players, "threatened him with some nasty, horrible words *sob*.".
The Chelsea captain has denied the accusation, but is known for his fiery temper, and could incur a lengthy ban from the FA.
Chelsea have a club policy of surrounding the match officials whenever a decision goes against them, whether it be for a sending-off, goal dispute, penalty, foul or throw-in, and exercise this arrangement with zeal.
New manager Avram Grant told reporters at a Stamford Bridge news conference this morning:
"We're British - we like to complain - it's what we do best!"
