Chelsea captain, John Terry, has been banned for four matches and fined £220,000 by the FA for racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender, Anton Ferdinand.
The Football Association found Terry guilty following a four-day court hearing.
A spokesmen for the ex-England international has said that he is very ‘disappointed’ with the FA’s decision, especially after he was found not-guilty back in July by a court of law.
The Terry statement continued: “He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal.”
A statement from his club added: “Chelsea Football Club notes and respects today’s decision by the Football Association regarding John Terry.
“We also recognise that John has the right to appeal that decision. It is therefore inappropriate for us to comment further on the matter at this time.”
The Chelsea skipper now has 14 days to decide whether to appeal the decision or not.
