Former Premier League referee Graham Poll believes Mark Clattenburg will have no problem refereeing Chelsea again.
The official, who was cleared of using insulting words towards Blues star John Obi Mikel on Thursday, is set to return to the field next week.
And former ‘man in black’ Poll claims the west London club need to have better procedures in place to prevent any future incidents.
“I don’t think, given time, we will have a situation where Mark Clattenburg can’t referee Chelsea,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.
“Mark won’t have a problem with the players at all. They truly believed Ramires had heard something improper from the start. You can understand the strong feeling, and the fact that it was misinterpreted is not the problem.
“The issue is Chelsea football club. I understand they have to investigate the allegation and protect their employee.
“But they went so public and were so damming before they had looked at it first. That’s the issue.”
