BBC News reports that Chelsea skipper John Terry has released a statement telling the world that he will not appeal against his four match ban for racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand.
Terry called Ferdinand a f**king black c**t during a match in October 2011.
In a statement released via his representatives Terry said:
“After careful consideration, I have decided not to appeal against the FA judgment.
“I want to take this opportunity to apologise to everyone for the language I used in the game against Queens Park Rangers last October.
“Although I’m disappointed with the FA judgment, I accept that the language I used, regardless of the context, is not acceptable on the football field or indeed in any walk of life.”
Terry’s statement continued: “As I stated in the criminal case, with the benefit of hindsight my language was clearly not an appropriate reaction to the situation for someone in my position.
“My response was below the level expected by Chelsea Football Club, and by me, and it will not happen again.
“Looking forward, I will continue to do my part in assisting the club to remove all types of discriminatory behaviour from football.
“I am extremely grateful for the consistent support of Chelsea FC, the fans and my family.”
Chelsea FC say they have disciplined Terry but refuse to give further details.
Those clowns probably patted him on the head and then gave him a payrise.
And in other news….
Terry’s team-mate and ‘man Friday’ Ashley ‘shoe shine’ Cole has been fined £90,000 for calling the Football Association a “bunch of twats” on Twitter after they issued their damning verdict surrounding events that took place after Terry racially abused Ferdinand.
Look where rocking up to Westminster Magistrates Court to protect/defend a racist get’s you. I wonder if John will repay shoe shine’s loyalty and pay the fine for him.
And does John really expect us all to believe that he will now help to assist his club to remove all types of discriminatory behaviour from football???
Hahahahahahahahahahaha. That is the funniest thing I have read so far today. What a joke.
