Former Football Association chairman Lord Triesman says he cannot understand why John Terry was given a lesser ban than Liverpool's Luis Suarez for racially abusing an opponent.
The FA Commission said the Chelsea captain got a lesser ban because the "racist insult was issued only once".
But Lord Triesman told the BBC he could not understand the difference.
"I couldn't understand why the sanction was different for a Liverpool player and for John Terry," he said.
"It may be when you look at all the detail they thought there were reasons for the difference. I can't see it."
Terry was banned for four games and fined £220,000 for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.
John Terry gets four-match ban
Suarez received an eight-match ban for the same offence against Patrice Evra last year but Suarez was found to have repeatedly used an abusive word when talking to the Manchester United defender.
