Football Child Sex Abuse
It is reported in The Times today that The Premier League has advised that after its investigations into an historic football child abuse claim by a former palyer in 2014 that Chelsea Football Club did not breach any of Premier League Rules.
Following claims about historic football child abuse in 2014 by a former player, the Premier League cleared Chelsea FC of NOT REPORTING ALLEGATIONS OF HISTORIC CHILD ABUSE.
Under the Rules at the time, the Club was only under a duty to report historic football child abuse claims only if they had been reported to the police or social services.
However it is reported that any safeguarding allegation has to be reported by the Football Club.
A Premier League statement read: “After careful consideration, the board has determined that no Premier League rules were broken by the club not reporting this matter to them in 2014.'
