Oh well, John Terry’s temporary bout of muteness looks to have been cured, with the release of a statement insisting him leaving Chelsea was “never a possibility”.
The 28 year old centre-back says “There has been a lot of speculation recently about my future and I want to clear this up once and for all. I am totally committed to Chelsea and always have been. Chelsea have also made it clear to me consistently that there was never any intention to accept any kind of offer.”
The trouble is, some of us just don’t buy it. If him leaving was ‘never a possibility’ and he really has always been ‘committed to Chelsea’, why has it taken so much time and so many reported ‘discussions’ for him to come out with a statement to that effect?
The Chelsea captain went on to say:
‘I know there has been comment that I should have made a statement earlier. However, throughout this period there have been numerous discussions between myself, the owner and the Chelsea Board and we all agreed that the timing of any statement would suit everyone involved in those talks, not any outside influences or agendas.’
