FA could INCREASE ban for Chelsea captain Terry

The FA could seek to extend the ban of Chelsea skipper John Terry.

The Sun says they can appeal the decision of last week's Independent Commission in exactly the same way as the Chelsea skipper can challenge the findings.

An FA source revealed: "We act as the prosecution in these cases and if we do not agree with the Commission's findings we have the right to appeal just like the defendant.

"Admittedly it is something that is done very rarely but it is an option open to us."

Both the FA and Terry are currently waiting for the Commission's written report of the four-day hearing and the reasons behind the former England captain's four-match ban and £220,000 fine.
