Chelsea captain John Terry has been handed a four-game ban and fined 220 thousand pounds by the FA following a clash with QPR defender Anton Ferdinand last year. Ferdinand accused Terry of racially abusing him when Chelsea met QPR in a Premier League match last November, a claim that Terry has continually denied. The 31-year-old was cleared of any wrongdoing by a magistrate in June, but English football's governing body have since taken matters into their own hands. Terry is understood to "disappointed" that a different conclusion was reached following the court's not-guilty verdict. Terry quit international football on Sunday with this week's hearing due to start the next day - citing his relationship with the FA as "untenable". Terry has already endured a strained relationship with the FA: they stripped him of the England captaincy earlier this year in light of Ferdinand's allegations. The Blues skipper has 14 days during which to make an appeal, and his four-match suspension will not take effect until he decides what course of action to take. That means he'll be available for Saturday's trip to Arsenal, as Chelsea look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.
