London, Dec. 3 : Queen’s Park Ranger (QPR) defender Anton Ferdinand was forced to flee his home in terror just hours before facing Manchester City last month.
According to the Sun, Ferdinand moved to a ''safe house'' after he became the target of a terrifying death threat in the wake of his race row with John Terry.
The police was called in when a letter was sent to Ferdinand''s club after claims he was racially abused by Chelsea skipper Terry in a game at Loftus Road in October.
The cops investigated the threat and advised Ferdinand to fit a panic alarm at his home.
But QPR boss Neil Warnock revealed yesterday his player had to leave home for his own safety on the eve of their 3-2 home defeat by City on November 5.
Warnock made the chilling revelation as he blamed the controversy for Ferdinand''s recent dip in form. (ANI)
