Former Football Association chairman Lord Triesman believes black players feel let down by the governing body's handling of the John Terry racism case.

Ex-England skipper Terry was found guilty of using racist language towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand by an independent FA panel earlier this week, but is awaiting the full written judgment before deciding whether to appeal against a four-match ban and a fine of £220,000.

Triesman told BBC Radio Five's Sportsweek programme: "I really think as you look around the country and talk to black players, what you will find is they respect him (John Terry) as a player but they really feel let down because they don't feel the line has been drawn clearly enough."
