John Terry has missed Chelsea’s last two games with an Achilles injury.
But the Blues captain remains in high spirits, if his latest Instagram post is anything to go by.
Terry was in the treatment room on Monday for a spot of PRP. And he shared the event with his fans by uploading the below image.
Terry – wearing a gown, mask and hairnet – accompanied the picture with the words: “Being injured is the most frustrating thing as a player. Working hard to get back fit.”
The 35-year-old, who has started 22 Premier League games this season, also wrote the letters “PRP”, which stand for platelet-rich plasma.
A PRP treatment involves extracting blood and then separating platelets from other cells, before returning them to the body in a higher concentration.
Although Chelsea are much better with Terry in the side, they should be under no pressure to rush him back because their season is effectively over.
Chelsea are out of all cup competitions, while they have just six Premier League games left to play. If they win all of those matches, they will end up on 62 points – a total which is 25 short of what they achieved last season.
With fourth-placed Manchester City already on 57 points, it seems almost impossible that 62 would be enough to qualify for the Champions League.
