Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has met referees, including Mark Clattenburg, in an effort to clear the air after the match official was cleared of racially abusing one of the club's players.

Buck met all 16 members of the select group of top referees at the St George's Park national football centre near Burton on Monday, sources have confirmed to Press Association Sport.

The meeting was at the request of the match officials, who wanted to hold talks with Chelsea following the Football Association's decision last week to clear Clattenburg of a complaint by the club that he had allegedly told midfielder John Obi Mikel "shut up you monkey".
