John Terry

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen admitted he sought John Terry‘s advice after his mistakes vs Barcelona in the Champions League last 16.

I try to keep it inside the club and not bring it home with me,” Christensen told Eurosport in Denmark. “My team-mates have also seen all my other performances, so they know that these mistakes aren’t typical for me. I have had a smaller talk with John Terry, he has also experienced setbacks, and it is always nice to talk to someone watching it from the outside and to learn that they have experienced the same. He told me that it is natural to make mistakes. And he tried to put it in perspective for me saying that if a forward misses a chance he can make it good again by scoring when he gets the next opportunity, but we can’t change a goal scored against us. So when we make mistakes it is more crucial and it is easy to point fingers at. I have realized it, looked at it and now I have moved on. It has been difficult to get out of. You are not doubting yourself, but you might get a bit more cautious in what you do, and that can make things even worse. So it is difficult to get out of it; move on from. I’ve been annoyed at myself, and that is difficult to get rid of – especially when there is a week between the matches, because then you have a whole week to think about it. You just want to move on to the next match so that you can play a match without mistakes. I can’t avoid making mistakes, but in some games the mistakes have been decisive, so now I am just waiting for the next games to come, so I can prove that the mistakes aren’t typical for me. I thought about it after making two mistakes in two matches, that I might be out of the next one. But I try to tell myself that before these matches I have played all the other ones almost with no mistakes at all. I hope that is the reason that I get to start, because he knows that – besides the last couple of matches – he can trust me, I haven’t made any mistakes, but been very solid for a long period. I am focusing on all the good games I have played this season.”

Former Chelsea and Wimbledon midfielder Vinnie Jones claimed that Blues players stopped to play for Antonio Conte because they are aware he won’t be at Stamford Bridge next season:

“I don’t think he wants to be there,” he told talkSPORT.

To me, it looks like he doesn’t want to. I think he knows he’s going to go, I think the players know he is going to go, so the players are like ‘all right, we’ll regroup next season’.

“They don’t have a [Frank] Lampard and a John Terry to sort the dressing room out now.”

Jones does not believe Conte should be criticised for the ultra-negative tactics he used against Manchester City, losing 1-0 and collecting the third away defeat in a row:

“If you go up there, it’s a fortress at Man City, the way they are playing – they are invincible at the moment,” Jones concluded.

Blues legend Dennis Wise believes one of the problems Chelsea are experiencing this season is a lack of leadership: in Wise’s opinion the London club have failed to replace properly captain John Terry.

At the moment they seem all over the place and things haven’t gone as nicely as they’d expect,” Wise told Premier League Daily. “I look at some of the personnel who have come in and they’ve found it very difficult to adapt at times to the way of the English Premier League. I look at a certain person who went out the door called John Terry, he was a leader of that group and I don’t think at the moment they have someone like that who is in there and can sort these problems out. I look at Cahill, and I’d like to think he would be a leader, but at the moment he’s been struggling as well.”

John Terry left Chelsea after more than twenty years at the club last summer but the former Blues captain also left great memories and feelings among his team-mates.

One of these is Cesc Fabregas, who shared the dressing room with him “only” for three seasons, winning two Premier League titles.

The Spanish midfielder sent a gift to Terry, a Chelsea shirt of his, with a special message, and the former Blues captain shared it on his Instagram story:

‘Thank you for everything.  It’s been a pleasure and honour to play with you my friend.

‘My only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner. You are a legend! Love you mate!’

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill speaks about Alvaro Morata saying he is not feeling the pressure and he demonstrates it by scoring a lot of goals in the Premier League.

“It’s great that, after Diego, we have another striker coming in and scoring straight away”. – Cahill said – I’m sure Alvaro wasn’t surprised by the pressure. He knew that it would be there when he joined and he came from a huge club anyway. Being a striker for Chelsea comes with a lot of pressure, but he has played with big players and big teams. He knows how to handle that and I don’t think it has been an issue at all. The easiest thing I found when I joined was that I knew a few people beforehand. It was early doors but I was in there with Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry. A few familiar faces helps and there are obviously a few Spaniards that Morata knows here. He is a fantastic guy, down to earth. His personality makes it very easy to get on with him. You can see from his performances that he is enjoying life at Chelsea.”

Gary Cahill has been officialy named new Chelsea captain by manager Antonio Conte.

Cahill already wore the armband many times last season and now, with Blues legend John Terry playing for Aston Villa, he has been awarded with the “job” permanently.

“I think that it’s right to continue with Cahill, if he plays, it’s right he’s the captain,” Conte said according to the Evening Standard – “Why? Because he stayed in Chelsea for many years and played a lot of games and showed good characteristics to be this.”

However, Gary Cahill will not be the only leader in Chelsea’s dressing room and on the pitch:  “I think also we can have other captains in our team, it could be Azpilicueta, David Luiz, and also, in the future, it could be Thibaut Courtois, Cesc Fabregas,” Conte continued – ” “I think every single player must improve in this [being big personalities in the dressing room] and understand [they have] to take more responsibility because we lost big players and we need now to find these new players to create this fundamental for Chelsea. It is very important for our future success to create this base”.

Gary Cahill is ready to begin the season as the new Chelsea captain.

“I feel I’m at an age where I can pass on my experience to the younger players,” – Cahill told reporters today – “We have a lot of experienced players in the dressing room anyway, but I certainly feel I can help.”

Gary Cahill, moreover, recognises, that Blues legend John Terry will be truly missed in the Chelsea’s dressing room: “Obviously – the defender continues – John Terry will be huge loss for us”.
