After announcing his retirement from international football earlier this week, the FA has found Chelsea defender John Terry guilty of using racist language towards QPR’s Anton Ferdinand…
In a court of law, Terry was acquitted of a racially aggravated public order offence for the same incident earlier this year. However, the FA’s independent regulatory commission has just delivered its verdict after a four-day hearing, ruling that Terry must serve a four-game ban and pay a fine of £220,000.
A statement issued by Terry’s management reads: “Mr Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law.”
It is thought that Terry will try and overturn this decision with an appeal.
What are your thoughts on the FA’s decision?
