Football anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out have commented on the findings by an independent FA commission on the John Terry racism case:
The written reasons are welcomed and acknowledge some important consequences of this episode, namely the trauma caused to the Ferdinand family.
It’s a period that has polarised the game, undermined the good work being done at all levels, and it must never be allowed to happen again. We note the rationale for the outcome and there is still a right to appeal, which we respect.
In addition, any sanction by Chelsea, as Mr Terry’s employer, is subject to the club’s own internal disciplinary procedures. The words used are completely unacceptable, irrespective of how many times they were levelled.
