Chelsea captain Terry to make racism appeal decision


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Thursday 18 October 2012

John Terry will decide on Thursday whether or not to appeal his suspension and fine from the Football Association after the independent panel set up by the governing body found the Chelsea captain guilty of racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand, the Daily Mail has reported.

Terry has until 6pm to confirm his next move, with the Mail reporting that the former England skipper, who retired from international duty in protest at the FA’s decision to continue its case against him even after he was cleared of an offence in court, is not expected to appeal the four-game ban and fine of more than £200,000.


The newspaper adds that the dispute between Terry and Ferdinand, which has taken in the likes of Ferdinand’s brother, Manchester United defender Rio, and Terry’s Chelsea teammate Ashley Cole, has already ran for very nearly a full calendar year.


Terry was found by the independent panel to have committed an offence as per the FA’s laws during the QPR vs. Chelsea match at Loftus Road in October 2011. Terry was cleared of a racially aggravated public order offence in Westminster Magistrates’ Court earlier this year but found guilty by the FA panel, which requires a lower burden of proof than the criminal process.
