Terry has now been slapped with a fine and urged to seek help with the FA ‘concerned’.

Last month, Terry – who monitor’s West Brom’s outgoing loanees’ progress – was charged with betting breaches.

He was found to have placed 209 bets between November 2017 and October 2019.

A betting company contacted the FA to alert them to Terry’s betting activity, with rules prohibiting employees of football clubs placing bets on any football, whether it involves their club or not.

Terry was found to have gone from placing bets ‘between £2 and £200’ to bets of up to £17,700.

The Baggies staff member wagered £17,700 on Italy to beat Sweden in November 2017, as well as £10,000 apiece on Manchester United to beat Basel and Germany to beat England in the same month.

All in all, Terry was found to have staked £63,800.40 with net losses of £46,916.73 during that span.

His 209 bets averaged over £300 per stake with the commission claiming ‘this figure was significantly skewed due to a handful of disturbingly high-stake bets that were placed’.

An FA report revealed Terry placed ‘bets which included games in competitions that (his) club had participated in during the relevant seasons. The 34 bets were all multiple bets.’

The report continued: “PT stated in interview that he had received education on betting and had been aware of the rules against betting on football albeit he was unsure that it applied to coaching staff.

“PT said that he has gambled all his adult life and that he was betting through boredom when he placed the bets on football.

“He said that he never bets beyond his means (and) did not consider himself to have a betting problem at all.”

The FA then revealed they had urged Terry to seek help for his gambling.

The report said: “The Commission was somewhat concerned and curious as to PT’s pattern of betting.

“PT had on a number of occasions placed very large stakes, that on the face of it appear to have been disproportionate to his football-generated income and he had lost a significant amount of money over a relatively short period of time.

“Given the above, the commission members were also concerned that PT did not consider himself to have a betting problem at all.

“The commission would urge PT to seek some help from the PFA, FA or other outside agencies in this regard.”
