Chelsea Refuses to Disclose Sanctions Against Terry

MOST COMMENTED

Pressure is mounting on Chelsea FC to publicly reveal what if any action the club has taken against John Terry after the player revealed Thursday he would not appeal the sanctions imposed on him by England’s Football Association for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand of QPR in a Premier League match last year. Terry was fined $354,000 and banned for four matches after an independent FA disciplinary commission found him guilty of the charge.

In a press conference on Friday, Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo refused to confirm whether Terry would remain team captain in addition to refusing to disclose any additional sanctions the club has leveled against the player. "We do not discuss publicly the disciplinary matters we take against our players. They remain confidential. You will have to wait and see," Di Matteo said, adding only that Terry “has realized that on that day he fell below his standards and the club’s standards. For that he has received a ban and a fine and more action from the club.”

Lord Herman Ouseley, chairman of the soccer equality group “Kick It Out,” warned that Chelsea’s private stance on Terry could be damaging in the eyes of people who have been waiting to see how the club would handle the case. "Kick it Out" on Thursday began a week of action dedicated to eradicating racism in soccer. As such, you will see Premier League players wearing “Kick it Out” T-Shirts during this weekend’s matches.
