Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to give a new contract to defender and captain John Terry.
The former England captain is out of contract at the end of the campaign. Terry recently revealed that the club have informed him that there will be no extension. This decision has received a lot of anger and criticism from Chelsea supporters, who feel that Terry is an indispensable part of the team. The club, though, see him as a 35-year-old who may not offer the club much in the coming years. Lampard, though, feels otherwise since Terry has such a command of the dressing room.
Guus Hiddink has salvaged Chelsea from dropping into the dreadful relegation zone and even though things have been going significantly better for the Premier League club, the Dutch coach has confirmed not only that he will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season but also that he is retiring when his time in Stamford Bridge reaches it’s completion in only a few months.
Oscar and Obi Mikel have voiced their desire in seeing Guus Hiddink maintaining his managerial position in Chelsea for an extended period of time but unfortunately for them it just won’t be happening as the Dutch manager has other things in mind and he confirmed his decision to retire during his latest press conference.
Guus Hiddink remains confident that Chelsea will be able to cope without the presence of defender John Terry at the back.
The Chelsea captain recently suffered an injury that has made him a major doubt for the game against Paris St Germain in the Champions League. This game is of massive importance to the club especially given that this represents the best opportunity of qualifying for the next season’s competition.
The blues are struggling in the 12th place owing to poor form since the start of the campaign. Terry, whose future at Chelsea hangs in the balance, recently suffered an injury in the 5-1 win against Newcastle United.
Chelsea, the English Premier League side, would offer John Terry till Friday to prove his fitness before of FA Cup match against Manchester City, on Sunday.
The captain of the Blues missed Tuesday evening’s Champions League loss at Paris Saint-Germain after limping out of Saturday’s win against Newcastle with an injury.
Chelsea defender John Terry says that he expects manager José Mourinho to take the club forward despite the wobbles this season.
The Portuguese manager has struggled to exert any authority over the team in the last six months.
Chelsea have been going through a steady period of decline since winning the title with three games left last season. Following a very poor pre-season, things have been expected to improve for quite a while without much hope. It has come to the time when the future of the manager is looking in serious jeopardy if this trend continues.
Manager José Mourinho has confirmed that defender Filipe Luis will be leaving the club in the next few days. The South American defender joined the club only last season for around £ 16 million.
Raheem Sterling along with Paul Pogba and Harry Kane is one of the young talents in the world of football that every top club wants to sign. Harry Kane has already stated that he does not have any interest in leaving Tottenham Hotspur anytime soon as he is happy performing at the White Hart Lane stadium.
Paul Pogba on the other hand is a player who is available to be signed as Juventus is willing to sell the French youngster and if the price is right, he will be offloaded away from the Italian club.
Chelsea captain John Terry says that the club are feeling highly motivated to win the four trophies on offer this season. No English club has managed to win the famous quadruple. Only Manchester United have come close and they won three major titles in a single season.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho refused to get caught up in the talk surrounding John Terry’s future after saying that the club still has a lot of time to decide on their captain.
AC Milan is eager to make sure that Nigel de Jong doesn’t leave this winter or next summer. The club management is believed to be going to offer a new deal to the midfielder soon.
De Jong was wanted by Manchester United towards the end of the last transfer window, but, Milan, as expected, refused to let the Dutchman go.
However, De Jong himself, while talking to a newspaper correspondent, had said that he was feeling proud to be on United’s radar.
United will definitely try for De Jong again in January. They are seeking a holding playmaker quite badly at the moment.
