Di Matteo demands better standards

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo admitted Chelsea's players had to work harder to repair the club's battered reputation in the wake of the latest scandal to engulf Stamford Bridge.

The John Terry and Ashley Cole sagas have arguably tainted the Blues like never before, with the former found guilty by the Football Association of racist abuse and the latter launching a foul-mouthed Twitter tirade against the English game's governing body.

Di Matteo has already announced disciplinary action against Cole, something which could also be taken against Terry if he elects not to appeal against the decision of an independent FA panel, and the Blues boss said: "The image of the club is very important to us of course. We strive to have high standards and hopefully, going forward, we can be better at showing those."
