Di Matteo avoids Terry question

Published 3 Comments

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo admitted John Terry had tarnished the image of the club but refused to confirm whether he remains captain.

Terry was banned for four matches and fined £220,000 after an independent Football Association regulatory commission found him guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. The former England defender accepted the sanction on Thursday and issued an apology for the language he used in the match at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.

"It has certainly put a cloud over the image of the club," Di Matteo said. "We have done many good things as well and it is a shame we cannot talk more about football, which is our priority."
