Di Matteo denies Chelsea players are out of control after Cole Twitter outburst

The left-back hit out following the release of the FA's written reasons behind the John Terry verdict, with the Blues boss revealing the centre-back will remain as captain
Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has denied his players use of Twitter is "out of control" after Ashley Cole’s outburst on the social network site.

The defender reacted badly to the FA’s report on their guilty verdict given to John Terry, and vented his frustrations on his Twitter account.

After the FA claimed his testament was unreliable, Cole labelled the governing body a "bunch of t****", but his Italian boss has denied claims that squad behaviour is poor despite the outburst.

"We'll look at the tweet and then we'll see ... I don't think the players are out of control," Di Matteo told reporters.

The Blues manager has also shown his support for his captain Terry, who was banned for four games and fined £220,000 by the FA disciplinary panel for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, insisting the 31-year-old will continue to lead the side.

He added: "At the moment, he's our captain."
