Chelsea´s pre-season tour of Malaysia has received the green light after the country´s government announced there would be no restrictions on the club´s two Israelis.

Doubts had been raised about the tour after Chelsea said they would not travel without manager Avram Grant and defender Tal Ben-Haim.

Malaysia does not have diplomatic relations with Israel, and citizens need special permission to travel to the country, but foreign minister Rais Yatim said there would be no problems with the Chelsea pair.
