Jose Mourinho former assistant manager Steve Clarke believes that Chelsea and Antonio Conte are making a mistake not extending John Terry‘s contract for the next season:

“I’m surprised and I have been quite vocal in my support of John Terry staying at Chelsea next season,” Clarke told Sky Sports News HQ.

“John has been there so long. He understands the club and knows it inside out. He understands the passion of the supporters and it is just my personal opinion, but I think he would be a big help for the incoming manager.

“It’s Conte‘s first season in the Premier League and he would have John’s experience to call on when needed. He’d have John’s ear, if you like.

“John is the club captain and a big personality in the dressing room and it just seems a little strange that they are going to let him go. It’s not as though he is over the hill. You look at his performances this season when he’s been fit, the team have done well so I think he has another season in him.”

Clarke also underlined how Chelsea will struggle in next transfer window, being the club out of European competitions for the next campaign:

“The elite players, the top, top players around the world want to play Champions League football so Chelsea will struggle to attract that type of player to the club,” Clarke said.

Finally, he claimed that Conte is the right choice in this moment for the club:

“But I think Antonio Conte is a good appointment. His track record is good. People I have spoken to tell me he is quite intense, not too dissimilar to Jose Mourinho in that aspect.

“He’s very demanding of his players and I think Chelsea have shown this season that they are a squad of players that need a manager who demands a lot of them and pushes them.”

Chelsea captain John Terry is set to leave the club at the end of this season after he joined it as a kid and became a legend, as well as the leader of the team for many years.

The Blues directors are not keen to extend his contract and the skipper, now 35, wants to hire Stamford Bridge for a big leaving party next week and boss Guus Hiddink hopes to get an invitation:

“I hope I will be invited,” said the interim manager.

“I don’t know. You have to ask him.”

The match with current Premier League champions, Leicester City, that will end this campaign on 15 May could be the last one for Terry with the Chelsea shirt and all the tickets are already sold out.

Chelsea captain John Terry took Instagram this morning to share his feelings about last night game against Spurs with his fans and to congratulate once again Leicester City and old Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri, that were crowned Premier League champions last night thanks to Eden Hazard‘s goal, but also praised the Blues fans for the incredible support and atmosphere at the Bridge:

“What a game that was last night. Great character from the players to come back from 2-0 down,” Terry wrote.

“The atmosphere was incredible and we know how much that result means to you supporters. 27 years #notonmyshift

“Well done @garyjcahill and @hazardeden_10 on two superb finishes.

“Congratulations Leicester City and all their players, Claudio Ranieri who fully deserve the league title this year.”

Chelsea captain John Terry told Soccer AM he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge as long as he can.

Terry said: “I think I’ve got a couple of years left and I definitely intend to keep playing. Hopefully at Chelsea, if not it will be somewhere else.”

“I’m feeling good physically and intend to play as long as I can. As a professional footballer you’re a long time retired, so I think not only for myself but for all of us we should get the most out of it and enjoy it while it’s there.”

Chelsea captain John Terry is set to return from injury next week in the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Terry hasn’t played a minute of football since the achilles injury he suffered on March 19th.

According to manager Guus Hiddink, the former England centre-half will be back training with the team this week.

“John is very committed. He was very annoyed about his injury, but now recovering. He desperately wants to be with the team.”

“I hope he will step up next week and we will see how it will go in the last couple of games. We play on Monday week. He has to step up, starting next week. He should be training with the group at least by Thursday [to be considered to face Spurs].”

Terry travelled with the Chelsea team yesterday to watch the game against Bournemouth and Guus Hiddink appreciates having someone with such experience on the sideline to give his thoughts and views on the game.

“It’s good to have players having the view from the other side, from the manager’s side.”
