The FA should have dealt with this MONTHS AGO!
Chelsea skipper John Terry has been banned for four games by the FA (Football Association) and fined £220,000 for his actions in the Anton Ferdinand race row case. The footballer has 14 days to appeal.
The FA released the following statement:
‘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.
‘The Football Association charged Mr Terry on Friday 27 July 2012 with using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour 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.
‘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.’
Last week Terry announced that he was retiring from international football (good riddance) and then had the nerve to bawl about being “treated unfairly by the FA”.
Jog on John!
I bet shoe shine boy Ashley Cole is at John’s house now consoling him with hugs and cups of sweet tea.
