Chelsea will reportedly be allowed to wear the Club World Cup badge on their shirts for the rest of the season after the Premier League accepted their request.
The Champions League holders after beating Palmeiras 2-1 in the final in Abu Dhabi won the competition first time this month after missing the chance in 2012.
They then wore the badge to celebrate their success in Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace in the Premier League, but many believed it was just a one-off occurrence.
The report claims top-flight bosses believe allowing the west London side to display the fact they are world champions on their strips is positive for English football.
But the rules – which banned changes to a kit during the season – nevertheless seem to have been skewed, and the news could well cause ire among Liverpool and Manchester United fans.
