Chelsea have accepted an apology from the Malaysian Football Association over the alleged racist abuse suffered by midfielder, Yossi Benayoun, in last week's friendly in Kuala Lumpur.
The Malaysian FA said: "From our initial observations, if such an incident did take place, it would have involved a small minority of spectators ...We would like to strongly register that we do not condone any form of racism ... and we would like to apologise to the player and also to Chelsea."
