FA can still bring charges against Terry
The Football Association will study the findings of the John Terry court case before deciding whether or not to bring any charges against the Chelsea captain.
Terry was cleared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand and the FA will now have to decide whether to open disciplinary proceedings under its rules. Liverpool’s Luis Suarez was banned by the FA last season for racially abusing Patrice Evra but that case never went to court.
An FA spokesman said: “The FA notes the decision in the John Terry case and will now seek to conclude its own enquiries. The FA will make no further comment at this time.”
