John Terry might be out of the Chelsea line-up currently, but that doesn’t matter to him as long as the team are winning and playing well.
The 36-year-old defensive stalwart has fallen down the pecking order in recent weeks, with Antonio Conte preferring a back-three of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill.
It’s worked for the Chelsea boss as his side have won six consecutive Premier League games without conceding a goal, and Terry has no complaints about not being in the starting line-up as he sat down with former teammate William Gallas in a frank interview on SFR Sport.
“I’m in a position now when the team is playing unbelievable, playing really well, not conceding goals and I can’t get in the team, and that’s a good thing, I’m so happy for the boys and the team,” Terry said, as seen in the video below.
“When i’m sitting there and watching I appreciate how well they’re playing and like I said, if I don’t get back in the team it’s a thing because it means we carry on winning.
“In the nicest way, I hope I don’t get back in the team because it means we continue to win football matches.”
Terry is currently sidelined with an injury and so won’t be in a position to fight his way back into Conte’s plans in the more immediate future.
However, it just shows how much the club means to him and how much he prioritises their success over his own individual satisfaction that he just wants to see Chelsea winning games whether he’s in the team or not.
Chelsea supporters will undoubtedly love what he has to say in the interview with Gallas…
