Benitez backs Chelsea captain Terry as future manager

Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez believes that current Blues captain John Terry would make a fine manager, reports ESPN.

There has been a long-standing theory that Terry is future Chelsea manager material, and present occupant of that role Benitez feels that the 32-year-old’s knowledge of the game and passion for discussion have all the hallmarks of a future boss.


Benitez said: “It is quite possible that John has the good qualities to become a manager. I have had players in the past who have been big names, but they did not understand the game like him. He likes talking about tactics. He seems as though he understands and with the way he treats the young players and takes care of them.


With Terry having returned to the fold for his first start since mid-November during the club’s FA Cup draw with Brentford, Benitez has also backed the former England international to help revive the West Londoners’ flagging season.


He continued: “John is a great player and a great leader. Maybe in some games we lacked something like this recently, but John can now be a key player for us for the rest of the season.


The former Liverpool boss, meanwhile, was again the target of the fans’ ire during the match, with chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” directed towards the Spaniard, but he believes that his actions during the game proves those claims wrong, and vowed to battle on during his stay in London.


He said: “I guarantee that sending on Juan Mata and changing the game showed we do know what we are doing. We have to remember that this is a transition period at the club. They wanted a manager with experience and I will continue to try and do my best.
