Chelsea boss Di Matteo admits Terry let club down in race row

Saturday 20 October 2012

Roberto Di Matteo has publically criticised John Terry for his conduct that led to the race row between the Chelsea captain and Anton Ferdinand, the Queens Park Rangers defender, which rumbled on for almost exactly a full calendar year, the Guardian has reported.

The newspaper adds that Di Matteo is the first member of the Chelsea hierarchy to publically censure Terry, who begins his four-game ban on Saturday as Chelsea play Tottenham Hotspur. Terry will also miss two games against Manchester United - one in the Premier League, the other in the Capital One Cup - and the fixture with Swansea City.


Terry was also fined £220,000 and has been the subject of internal disciplinary action but Chelsea have declined to reveal what measures were taken against the skipper, who is expected to retain the armband, although Di Matteo would not confirm as much at his weekly pre-match press conference on Friday.


Di Matteo did however condemn Terry for his role in the incident that occurred in October 2011. The Chelsea manager said: “The image of the club has suffered from this issue. There's no denying that. We try to do everything in our power to maintain high standards with the club's employees and supporters.


People make mistakes. He has apologised and is being punished. I think he realises that he let himself down and the club in that day and moment. He realises his language was not appropriate. He realises he let himself down and the club and the supporters and he will get punished for that.
