It’s not over yet: John Terry and Anton Ferdinand face FA bans
John Terry is facing an FA ban — despite being cleared of a racist slur yesterday.
He and Anton Ferdinand are BOTH likely to be punished for their foul-mouthed spat on the pitch.
The FA will reopen their own inquiry into the scandal — and are ready to charge them with bringing the game into disrepute and using offensive language.
So although Chelsea skipper Terry, 31, beat the charge of racially abusing Ferdinand, his nine-month ordeal is far from over.
The FA refuses to close the book on the clash — captured by TV cameras at the QPR-Chelsea Premier League game last year.
A senior FA source said last night: “We were the first people to launch an inquiry and only put it on hold at the request of the Crown Prosecution Service.
“Now the trial has been concluded we will look at it again — including all evidence given in court.
“In the light of Terry being cleared of racial abuse by a court it is unlikely that we will uncover further evidence on that. But there could be charges of ‘bringing the game into disrepute’ and using ‘offensive, insulting and or abusive language’.”
Both stars admitted as much on oath during the trial so can expect a ban of at least two matches.
