Terry and Chelsea respond to FA verdict

John Terry and Chelsea have both issued official statements following the FA's guilty verdict and decision to hand the England defender a four-month ban.

A statement from Terry's management suggested that they would consider an appeal, saying: "Mr. Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law. He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal." If Terry does decide to appeal, he will have two weeks to do so.

Chelsea's statement was short and to the point, but made clear that "Chelsea Football Club notes and respects today's decision by the Football Association regarding John Terry."

The club added that "We also recognise that John has the right to appeal that decision. It is therefore inappropriate for us to comment further on the matter at this time."
