Sir Geoff sacked Heath six months after taking the manager’s job at Stamford Bridge in 1979.

The 1966 England hero said: “It was purely a footballing decision.

“I feel incredible sorrow for the victims of Heath and the other protagonists in this sad affair, but at no point did I have any knowledge whatsoever of any wrongdoing.
