Terry set to earn new Chelsea contract
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that captain John Terry is in line to receive a new deal, should he maintain his current form, ESPN is reporting.
Terry scored the equaliser on Saturday as Chelsea gained a point from a 1-1 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur, the 56th goal of his long Blues career, during which he has helped Chelsea to three Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and more recently the Champions League and the Europa League.
And Mourinho has confirmed that Terry should be awarded with a contract if his good form continues. He said: “He is a very good player, and very good players have no problems with their contracts. I think he always has a future the way he is playing - he has a future in here, or wherever he wants to have a future.
“I have always told him from day one, don't speak [publicly] about signing a new contract, just speak about working very hard from a physical point of view so you don't have the same kind of problems you have had in the past two years, and then you play regularly.”
Since Mourinho made his return to Chelsea for this season, Terry regained his status as a regular in the Chelsea defence, after former interim boss Rafael Benitez tended to prefer Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic and David Luiz for the bigger games.
