Chelsea captaincy issue unanswered

Published 3 Comments

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has refused to confirm whether John Terry remains the club captain.

Terry was banned for four matches and fined £220,000 after an independent Football Association regulatory commission found him guilty of racially abusing the QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

Terry accepted the sanctions on Thursday and issued an apology for the language he used, while Chelsea said they had also taken internal disciplinary action against the player, but insisted the nature of the punishment would remain confidential. Di Matteo said that Terry knows whether he remains Chelsea captain - but the manager refused to make that decision public.
