After surgery only two weeks ago and admitting he’d started jogging two days after the operation, Chelsea captain John Terry found himself on the bench midweek against Birmingham and now should be expected to play a role in the forthcoming fixtures against Stoke and Napoli. The skipper also had some words to say about recently departed manager Andre Villas-Boas.
“Sad for Andre because, unfortunately, it falls on his head, when I think the players would hold their hands up and say, ‘Clearly, we’ve not been good enough and we all made mistakes together’.
“He’s the man whose head’s on the block and, unfortunately, goes.”
Reports suggested that Terry was one of the players in support of Villas-Boas, but now focus is solely on the club going ahead and challenging for Champions league and FA Cup honours, along with battling for 4th place in the league.
