The Blues centre-back was handed a four-game suspension and £220,000 fine by the FA after being found guilty of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand in October last year.
Despite the Westminster Magistrates’ Court clearing Terry, the recently-retired England international was hit with the punishment and is deeply saddened by the verdict which he still may appeal.
"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,” a statement issued by Terry’s management company read.
"He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal."
"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."
