Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas claims the alleged racism incident between his captain John Terry and QPR defender Anton Ferdinand will be cleared up imminently, as the two players have already spoken.
“We fully back John,” said a defiant Villas-Boas in his press conference today. “He spoke to Anton after the game.
“For us it was end of story. It’s just a big misunderstanding and something blown out of proportion.”
“John is a player who [represents] this country to the highest level internationally,” continued Villas-Boas. He is a player of great responsibilities.
“I find it strange when people don’t trust the words of a representative from your country.
“The clubs are in touch with each other and for us the matter is over.
“We have full backing for our player and for us it is the end of story.
“The rest we have to wait and see.”
Meanwhile, the FA have charged Chelsea with failing to control their players against QPR, and Villas-Boas has been asked to explain his post-match criticism of referee Chris Foy.
