Chelsea have denied reports that they have not been fully co-operating with the Premier League regarding their alleged 'tapping up' of Ashley Cole.
Blues manager Jose Mourinho and chief executive Peter Kenyon apparently failed to attend the Cole inquiry, despite repeated requests by the league for their presence.
It had been feared the pair could be in breach of rule R2 that states all clubs must co-operate fully with official investigations, however the club denies the claim.
Chelsea, Jose Mourinho and Ashley Cole have all been charged by the Premier League over The Blues' alleged 'tapping up' of the Arsenal defender.
The Premier League launched an investigation last month after it was reported that a delegation from Chelsea, including Mourinho, chief executive Peter Kenyon and super agent Pini Zahavi met Cole and his representative Jonathan Barnett at a London hotel on January 27th.
A lawyer hired by the Premier League has now decided that there is a case to answer and Mourinho, Cole and Chelsea will all now face an independent commission.
