Terry focused on Norwich clash despite FA's revelations
Chelsea captain John Terry is completely focused on their weekend clash with Norwich despite the damning revelations made in the Football Association (FA) report over the Anton Ferdinand racism case, which branded the former England international a liar.
Terry was systematically ripped to bits by the disciplinary panel which fined him 220,000 pounds and banned him for four games for calling QPR defender Ferdinand a "f****** black c***".
Terry has 14 days to consider an appeal and remains aggrieved over the whole episode, however, a source close to the defender said he is unperturbed for now.
"John is totally focused on the match against Norwich and nothing else. Only when the game is over will he then turn his attention to the FA Commission's report," the Sun quoted a source close to Terry, as saying.
"He will look at it in detail early next week along with his lawyers and advisers. There's no need to rush - we have 14 days to respond. We can make a considered decision although it's unlikely we will need the full 14 days to do that," the source added.
If Terry appeals, he runs the risk of his ban being increased. (ANI)
