Chelsea captain, John Terry has accepted his punishment – a four-match ban and a £220,000 fine after an FA panel found him to have insulted the Queens Park Rangers defender during a game at Loftus Road last October.
In a statement released by his management agency, he said: “After careful consideration, I have decided not to appeal against the FA judgement.
“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 judgement, 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.
“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.”
He maintained he was just using the word in a way to ask Anton Ferdinand if that’s what he though he had said.
He will now miss next weekend’s EPL Match against Tottenham and 3 more matches.
