John Terry's club Chelsea said it supports its captain's decision not to appeal his FA fine and suspension.
A statement said:
Chelsea Football Club believes John Terry has made the correct decision by not appealing against the FA judgment relating to language he used at the QPR match last October.
Chelsea also appreciates, and supports, John's full apology for the language he used.
The club firmly believes such language is not acceptable and fell below the standards expected of John as a Chelsea player.
The club added that it had also taken its own disciplinary action but the details would remain confidential:
The Board has conducted its own investigation into the matter, and considered the various issues involved. The Board has taken further disciplinary action in addition to the four-match suspension and £220,000 fine imposed by the FA.
In accordance with our long-standing policy, that disciplinary action will remain confidential.
