The 34 year old’s Blues contract expires next summer and a new deal may be in the pipeline after a continued run of good from displayed by the club legend.
‘Every individual is an individual,’ said Mourinho. ‘There are old players at the age of 22. I know some — 22 and old. I know young guys at 36 or 37. John is one of them.
‘I don’t know [how long Terry can play]. You never know when. The important thing is that, tomorrow, it’s the next match and he’s in great condition to play.
‘Our training methodology helps. The way he is taking care of himself is very important too but the most important thing of everything is to be happy.
‘I read a famous neurologist who said, “We docs always say do some exercise, eat properly, be careful with salt, be careful with this protein, but we forget to tell people the most important thing: be happy.”
‘John had a period here of so many doubts, question marks. Is he still the same player? Can he play at this level? Is he fit? Will he play or be in the stands?
‘Then, suddenly, the happiness arrives and look at him. It’s been a process. When I arrived we played a European Super Cup and he was not playing. At that moment, he was happy but he was not ready for the high level. So it was also a process. But the reality is he played so well last season and this season, too.’
Terry has been an ever present in Premier League action this term and has started five of the club’s six Champions League encounters and seems fighting fit and well deserving of another year or two at the West London outfit.
