Roberto Di Matteo insists Chelsea will adhere to any rule change that would see players sacked for racist abuse, despite their refusal to kick John Terry out of the club.

Blues boss Di Matteo was coy about whether he fully endorsed the Professional Footballers' Association's six-point plan to combat racism, which has been drawn up in the wake of the Terry scandal. But the Italian insisted Chelsea would follow it to the letter if it had the backing of the majority of clubs.

He said: "It's a difficult one. If the majority believe that we need a law like that then, as I said, we will obey it and support it."
