Players' union chairman Clarke Carlisle is confident the game's authorities will deal with the Mark Clattenburg racism allegations appropriately.

The Football Association has come under fire and been accused of being "institutionally racist" after the Metropolitan Police dropped its investigation into the affair. The accusations against the FA have come from Peter Herbert, chair of the Society of Black Lawyers (SBL), who is disappointed neither the governing body nor Chelsea reported the claims against Clattenburg to the police.

Professional Footballers' Association chairman Carlisle said: "He [Peter Herbert] made his report to the police off the back of information he received from the Daily Mail and I have greater faith in Chelsea and the FA acting accordingly with their first-hand evidence and witnesses, and the case being dealt with correctly - as it should be in the current climate - rather than with a third or fourth party observing from the outside."
