Chelsea Captain John Terry
has been banned for four matches and fined £220,000 following an incident
involving QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
The charge and fine have both been confirmed by the FA.
Reference to color
-An Independent Regulatory Commission has today [Thursday 27 September 2012] found a charge of misconduct against John Terry proven and has issued a suspension for a period of four matches and a fine of £220,000, pending appeal, said an official statement on thefa.com
-The Football Association charged Mr Terry on Friday 27 July 2012 with using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behavior towards Queens Park Rangers’ Anton Ferdinand and which included a reference to colour and/or race contrary to FA Rule E3 in relation to the Queens Park Rangers FC versus Chelsea FC fixture at Loftus Road on 23 October 2011.
Outcome of any appeal
A hearing took place from 24-27 September 2012 before an Independent Regulatory Commission of The FA to consider the charge.
- The penalty is suspended until after the outcome of any appeal, or the time for appealing expires, or should Mr Terry decide not to appeal. The reason for this is to ensure that the penalty does not take effect before any appeal so that Mr Terry has an effective right of appeal, adds the FA
Just recently he retired from playing from the England National team
