Chelsea Football Club has expressed regret over the club's handling of the Mark Clattenburg racism allegation in a joint statement issued with the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd and the Premier League.
There was a constructive and open discussion.
The club regrets not having given more consideration before issuing a statement on the evening of Sunday 28th October.
The club also regrets the subsequent impact the intense media scrutiny had on Mark Clattenburg and his family.
It added that the club would have "no issue" with Clattenburg refereeing future fixtures featuring Chelsea.
Chelsea FC made it clear they would welcome Mark Clattenburg back to Stamford Bridge in the future and PGMOL would have no issue in appointing him to a Chelsea FC match going forward.
