Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is hoping for a swift conclusion to the complaint launched by his club against referee Mark Clattenburg, accusing the official of making "inappropriate comments" interpreted as being racist in nature towards John Obi Mikel.
The complaints stemmed from Chelsea's 3-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester United on October 28. Clattenburg has denied making inappropriate remarks. The Metropolitan Police closed their investigation into the matter on Tuesday, while the Football Association says it will complete its own probe by Friday.
By then it will be almost three weeks since the match was played, and Cech is eager to move on. "If there was a case it is not because Chelsea want to do something, it is just because there is a case and again, I hope that this story will be finished as soon as possible," he told CNN.
