Somebody said the 34-year-old Blues captain is not able to play twice a week.

Terry has played every minute of every game in Chelsea's league campaign this season

According to The Telegraph, John Terry has made a dig at former Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez after Chelsea won the Premier League title, as Chelsea players celebrated their Premier League title success.

“One person said I couldn’t play twice in a week,” said the Blues captain. “He knows who he is. I’m still here, still fighting. This is unbelievable, we worked so hard and we got over the line; we’re champions.”

Other Chelsea players also took to show their happiness at winning the London club’s first title since 2010. Striker Didier Drogba’s contract finishes at the end of the season, and this year could be his last at Stamford Bridge.

“This one is sweet,” said Drogba. “With or without me, Chelsea will always be No1. Chelsea is bigger than me and always will be.”

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas was also delighted to finally win the Premier League:

“I cannot believe it, I have fought very hard for this moment and it is here, I’m very proud,” Fabregas said. “This is a top club, a top team and we are the champions.”

Eden Hazard, who scored the title-winning goal against Crystal Palace, said: “We have won the title and always Chelsea are happy to win. I was lucky today.”

The Belgian won the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year award and, speaking about manager Jose Mourinho, Hazard added: “He gives me a lot of confidence, lets me play my best football. I know the team need me, we are here to score and change the game.”

Defender Cesar Azpilicueta said: “This is a very big moment, we deserve it, as a team we have been looking forward to this moment.

“We know the quality of the Premier League and it is tough, every game is difficult. To have a 16-point advantage and win it with three games to go is not an easy thing to do.

“Mourinho is a very big influence, we needed him. He has come to this team, we have won two trophies this year and we want to go and win more trophies. For me, he has confidence in me and I am grateful to him.”
