Kick it Out: 'It's about how football moves forward from here'

After John Terry was given a four-match ban and fined £220,000 by the Football Association for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, Kick it Out's Lord Herman Ouseley told BBC Radio 5 Live:

This is not about recriminations. It's about how football moves forward from here after it has spent 11 months going through the wringer.

People are trying to make the game a better place to be. Seven million people play on a regular basis and we want them to play in an atmosphere of no abuse.
