Chelsea captain John Terry has denied that the club have a player in the ranks that would rather lose than win for Jose Mourinho by claiming that they “wouldn’t get out of the dressing room,” according to the Daily Express.
The Skipper’s warning came just hours before two crucial games that could decide manager Jose Mourinho’s future following a tepid start to their season that has virtually seen them already surrender their Premier League title.
Terry insisted that The Blues would rather be loved than hated and predicted that the likes of Mourinho and star winger Eden Hazard could end up being pushed out of the English game.
Terry reacted after the allegations were made in BBC Radio show on Sunday that an unnamed Chelsea player had said they wanted to lose for Mourinho.
“In the last few days we’ve had ridiculous stories about what’s happening within the dressing room,” said Terry. “In my whole career I’ve never heard a player come out with those words.
“The player wouldn’t be let out of the dressing room, let’s be honest. It wouldn’t go down too well.
“I’ve seen players’ faces with the disappointment after results. The players are 100% behind the manager. We are together.
“The players will stand up and say – and I will personally – we’ve not been good enough. We take that on our shoulders. We know what we need to do.
“It’s going to take a dressing room that sticks together. We are prepared to fight. The fans want to see people putting their bodies on the line. That’s the bare minimum.”
