Chelsea’s captain John Terry is concerned about his first-team regular position and admits he is “fighting” for his spot. Terry’s current contract is set to end at the end of the season and there are no signs of contract talks from the Blues’ management so far.
The defender scored the opening goal in his side’s 2-0 win over Spurs in Capital One Cup’s triumph last weekend. He already scored 6 goals this season an impressive stat considering he is the centre half of Chelsea.
He also surpassed the likes of Falcao and Balotelli in the goals chart this season which is very impressive. It is known that Chelsea’s policy for players above 30 is to offer them 12-month contracts and offer new contracts if they continue their good form over the course of the season.
However, Chelsea have not started any talks over Terry’s contract which is quite strange but Mourinho admiited it is just a formality at the end of the season with Chelsea management ready to offer £150,000-a-week contract.
Terry said, “I am fighting for my future, for my family’s future and I want to give it everything. I don’t know how long I have left. Hopefully I have a few years left but if this is my last year then I hope I will go out on a bang.’ Terry also revealed he will retire at the top and will not play at a lower level, or for another team, when he leaves Stamford Bridge.
“The manager came in, sat me down, and made it clear that if you work hard you will get extra years and you will play, but if not there are other players who are younger who can play and will fight for their place. This is a year roll-on. I am fighting for myself and my family, and to prove people wrong. It doesn’t come much bigger than that.”
Terry added, “I also think there’s a right time to go as well. I would say at the start of my career, as a player you look at it and you want to get to 35… I have my little target to play next year but beyond that, two or three years.”
