John Terry gives latest update on Chelsea future
John Terry spoke to the media in his post-match interview after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United. When asked about his future he once again expressed his desire to stay beyond this season. Last week after their FA Cup win against MK Dons Terry said that this would be his last season at the club after Chelsea had supposedly not given him an extension.
But Chelsea have stated they haven’t made a decision and have kept the channels of communication open with the Blues captain. Speaking after the game, he said, “It’s a difficult one. The club is the most important thing but there’s no communication at the moment. I said what I had to say, that’s how it is. I've made it very clear I want to stay, but more important is getting up to where we should be in the table”
Terry joined the Chelsea youth system at the age of 14 from West Ham United. He’s been at the club ever since making over 700 appearances for the Blues. Terry had earlier asked for a meeting to discuss his contract. That led to the Blues legend declaring he would leave after the club didn’t offer him a contract during those discussions.Terry has also stated that he wouldn’t play for another Premier League club if he was to leave.
Several fans at Stamford bridge were in support of their leader during the game against United on Sunday.There were many banners held up requesting the club to extend their beloved veteran’s contract.
Chelsea rescue a point against United after late Costa strike
Chelsea stayed unbeaten after Hiddink took over with a late goal from Diego Costa after Lingard had given United the lead in the 61st minute. The point leaves hem 13th in the table 11 points behind their rivals.
The Chelsea captain felt his team deserved a point saying, "They started well but as the game grew on we grew into it. It was a great response, we've shown that character since the manager came in and that's good to see”.
Chelsea also had a possible penalty claim at the end of the first half. Terry was convinced that the decision should have been given their way by stating, “It was going in I think. It's difficult for the ref but inside the box? Going in? For me it’s got to be a penalty.” Chelsea next welcome the visit of Newcastle on the 13th of February.
