Ouseley wants transparency from Blues

Published Add your comment

Chelsea came under fire on Thursday for keeping their punishment of John Terry secret after the defender accepted a four-match ban and £220,000 fine from the Football Association for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

The club are understood to have handed Terry a further fine but he will remain as club captain and will not have any further suspension. Chelsea have insisted that their internal action against Terry will remain confidential, as have past disciplinary cases involving their players.

But Lord Herman Ouseley, chairman of football's equality group Kick It Out, said: "I believe Chelsea need to be open about the action they have taken. A lot of people will be dissatisfied that Chelsea have not been much more up front about the standards they set and the values they have."
