Chelsea manager Antonio Conte claimed that captain John Terry did not deserve to be shown a red card against Peterborough in the FA Cup third round today.
“I think it wasn’t the right decision, – Conte told journalists speaking at press conference – Behind John there was [Branislav] Ivanovic. It’s a pity because a red card is not good. Maybe we’ll do an appeal because he didn’t deserve this.”
When asked about Terry’s future at Stamford Bridge, Conte added: “Now we are in January. First of all, these decisions need to be made with the club, not alone”.
“I’m pleased for John because he’s shown me great commitment when I’ve asked him to play and also when he doesn’t. He’s helping me a lot in the changing room. He’s proving himself to be a good player and, above all, a good man.’
