John Terry Banned For 4 Matches Over Racial Abuse


Former England football captain John Terry has been banned for four matches after the Football Association has found him guilty of racial abuse.

The 31-year-old Chelsea captain had denied an FA charge that he racially abused Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand in a Premier League match last October. He was acquitted in a criminal case in July.

But following an FA independent regulatory commission hearing, he has now been banned for four matches and given a £220,000 fine for using insulting words which included a reference to Anton Ferdinand’s colour or race.

After four days hearing evidence, from Terry, Ferdinand and other witnesses, the independent panel handed down their verdict this afternoon.

The charge was the result of The FA’s long-standing investigation into this matter, which was placed on hold at the request of the Crown Prosecution Service and Mr Terry’s representatives pending the outcome of the criminal trial.
