Kick It Out statement on John Terry trial verdict
Kick It Out has released a statement after Chelsea captain John Terry was acquitted of a racially aggravated public order offence.
Lord Herman Ouseley, Kick It Out Chair, said: “Kick It Out notes the decision reached and now awaits the pronouncements from The Football Association (FA) to any subsequent investigation into the matter.
“It will be interesting to hear from other organisations this will impact on, from governing bodies to leagues and clubs, and how they deem matters like this to be dealt with in the future.”
Further to today’s court verdict, The FA made the following statement: “The FA notes the decision in the John Terry case and will now seek to conclude its own enquiries. The FA will make no further comment at this time.”
