John Terry and Rafa Benitez in vicious Chelsea row

Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez and captain John Terry had a blazing row after Chelsea's 3-2 defeat at Newcastle United earlier this month, says The Sun.

It is believed that Blues boss Benitez believed his skipper was at fault for two of the Magpies' goals, with Terry refusing to accept that interpretation.

According to The Sun, a Chelsea source said: "Benitez blamed JT for two of the goals. He blamed him for losing Jonas Gutierrez for Newcastle’s first goal and for diving in without winning the ball in the build-up to their second."

"The manager was furious after losing in the last minute and made it clear he wasn’t happy with John’s performance. He also reckoned that John wasn’t fit enough after three months out of action."

But Terry refused to be criticised and hit back at his Spanish boss. The source continued: "JT wasn’t happy about the criticism and had a go back at the boss in front of all the other players in the dressing room. Everyone was stunned by the way the manager singled out JT. It was not the way he is usually spoken to at Chelsea.

Interim manager Benitez is believed to be under pressure at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea having won just three of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Chelsea take on Brentford in an FA Cup fourth round replay on Sunday afternoon after drawing 2-2 in the initial game at Griffin Park.
