John Terry apologizes,decides not to appeal against four-match ban and £220,000 fine!

John Terry has chosen not to challenge the four-match ban and £220,000 fine imposed on him for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand in October 2011 and has apologised for the comments he made.

Last month, an independent panel ruled that Terry had directed racist language at Ferdinand in the Premier League match, and the Chelsea captain was given two weeks to issue a response to the verdict.

In a statement released by his management agency, Terry said:
After careful consideration, I have decided not to appeal against the FA judgment.
I want to take this opportunity to apologise to everyone for the language I used in the game against Queens Park Rangers.
Although I'm disappointed with the FA judgment, 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.
My response was below the level expected by Chelsea Football Club, and by me, and it will not happen again.
Looking forward, I will continue to do my part in assisting the club to remove all types of discriminatory behavior from football.
The Chelsea captain will now miss Saturday’s match against Tottenham,as well as two matches against Manchester United(Premier League and League Cup matches ),and a trip to Swansea City.

Finally,Terry has admitted using abusive language.The charge is NOT that he is a racist per se - no one is saying he is – but that he used racial abuse!
