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.
John Terry has been banned for four matches and given a £220,000 fine for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, the FA have confirmed.
It seems Terry has predicted his own downfall and decided to dismount the horse now, rather than wait to be thrown off it.
John Terry ended his England career yesterday, on the eve of his Football Association improper conduct hearing.
