Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says it is time to draw a line under the John Terry court case and concentrate on the future.
Terry was cleared of a racially aggravated public order offence at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.
It had been alleged that the Blues skipper had used a racist obscenity about Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.
Cech and the majority of the Chelsea squad are currently in Seattle on the first stop of their pre-season tour, and he does not want to dwell on what has happened.
"We need to move forward, forget about the past and concentrate on the future. That is the only way," he told Sky Sports News.
Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor has admitted the game's image has been damaged by the Terry trial as it highlighted the amount of bad language used on the pitch.
Cech says it happens because emotions are so heightened during matches and believes players will carry on swearing.
"If every player had a microphone some people would be very surprised about what gets said on a football pitch," he explained.
"I think football always has been, and always will be, the same. You have a lot of adrenaline, a lot of joy, a lot of frustration.
"You cannot really take this away from the sport.
"You live the game for 90 minutes, 100 per cent focused, and you want the game to go your way, and sometimes the frustration or the happiness makes you swear and do things like that, but it is okay."
