Sir Alex Ferguson led the way in welcoming the Football Association's decision to clear Mark Clattenburg of racism allegations, with the Manchester United manager claiming everyone in the game "apart from Chelsea" was pleased.

Clattenburg had been accused by Chelsea of making a racist remark to John Obi Mikel during a game with United at Stamford Bridge last month. There have been calls for Chelsea to apologise and the club are understood to be considering how to respond.

Ferguson, who had spoken up for Clattenburg in the immediate aftermath of the allegation, said: "I did not believe it anyway. The unfortunate thing for Mark is that he has had to carry that stain for the last few weeks. Everyone in the game is pleased for him now - apart from Chelsea."
