LONDON - John Terry will continue as Chelsea captain in the wake of his ban for making racist comments.
The former England skipper was suspended for four matches — starting with yesterday's 4-2 win at Tottenham — and fined STG220,000 ($F629,957) by the Football Association (FA) earlier this month for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo had refused to say whether Terry would remain captain.
However, club chairman Bruce Buck confirmed yesterday that the defender would remain skipper but he's been fined an undisclosed amount.
"John will continue to be captain of the club. We have taken disciplinary action and we think it is firm disciplinary action and appropriate for the circumstances," he told Talksport radio. Details of the fine would remain confidential in line with club policy.
