Terry advised to “move on” by PFA boss Taylor

The head of the Professional Footballers’s Association Gordon Taylor has urged John Terry to end his feud with both the FA and Anton Ferdinand with Eurosport reporting that the Chelsea captain could be set to appeal against his four match ban handed to him by the FA for racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.

However, the publication of the FA’s independent report into the race saga which called Terry’s defence “improbable, implausible and contriveid” seems to have ended any possibility of an appeal.

Subsequently, PFA boss Taylor has stressed the need for both parties to move on from the saga which has been dominating both front and back pages since November 2011.

“Things have been said that shouldn't have been said," said Taylor. "We need reconciliation and if you're going to get reconciliation then people need to accept what they have done is wrong. Sometimes sorry is the hardest word, but it's a word that is very effective and it means a lot. Then we can move on. Without that, things continuing to fester. We need to move on - football has suffered enough, black players have suffered enough.”

Former England captain Terry recently announced his retirement from international football, citing the FA’s decision to hold their own independent tribunal into the Anton Ferdinand incident despite the Westminster magistrates court clearing him of all charges had made his place in the national team “untenable”.
