John Terry's miserable week might just be about to get worse after Uefa confirmed an investigation may be launched into whether he spat at Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez.
Chelsea captain Terry has denied accusations that he acted inappropriately in the melee that eventually led to Didier Drogba's dismissal in Wednesday night's Champions League final.
Terry was left devastated at the final whistle in Moscow after he missed a penalty in the shoot-out that would have crowned Chelsea champions, before Edwin van der Sar emerged as United's hero in saving Nicolas Anelka's sudden death effort.
A Uefa spokesman confirmed they had received the referee's report but were still waiting for the delegate to supply his. If the incident is not included in either report, then the ruling body may resort to examining television footage of the alleged incident before deciding on what action, if any, to take.
"The delegate's report should be in later today. We have received the referee's report but I cannot tell you what was mentioned in it," said the spokesman.
"At the moment there is nothing further to add."
