John Terry has been found guilty of using racial language, banned for four matches, and fined £220k. The independent FA panel today [Sept. 27] found him guilty of the charges relating to an incident involving Anton Ferdinand last October.

The four-match ban is half of that served upon Luis Suarez for his repeated abuse of Patrice Evra in a match last year. Terry was accused of using an offensive term once.

The FA released a statement which read:

'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[2] in relation to the Queens Park Rangers FC versus Chelsea FC fixture at Loftus Road on 23 October 2011’.

Terry’s representatives, Elite Management, said in a statement released on his behalf: “Mr Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law”.

“He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal”.

John Terry has 14 days to appeal which means he will be available for his side's game at Arsenal on Saturday.
