QPRFA ban Terry over Ferdinand incident

terryferdinand

Chelsea captain John Terry has been given a four-match ban and been fined £220,000 for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during the west London derby at Loftus Road last October.

An independent regulatory commission found the defender, 31, guilty of a charge of misconduct.

The Football Association will provide written reasons for its findings, after which Terry will be entitled to appeal within 14 days.

If he decides to challenge the verdict his suspension will not be enforced until his appeal is considered.

In July, Terry was cleared in court of racially abusing Ferdinand and has always denied the charges against him.

A statement from the player’s management company read: “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 continued: “He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal.”

Just hours before the hearing began, Terry retired from international football, claiming the FA’s decision to charge him had made his position with England “untenable.”
