Carlo Stands By His Man Ahead Of Arsenal

Despite the Sunday rags preparing to dish a bit more dirt on John Terry, the Chelsea manager suggests he has no hesitation when it comes to putting his captain in the side to face Arsenal.

Carlo Ancelotti says “John has to play against Arsenal because he’s one of the most important players in the team and we need to put strength and quality in the team.  Nothing is different about the last week.  The problem involving John is outside our training ground.  It’s normal life for us. It’s an important game against a strong team and I think we will be ready to play our best game.”

And John may well have lost his England captaincy ‘for the good of the team’ yesterday but it’s clear Ancelotti draws a line between what happens on and off the field, saying “I’m not interested in Capello and John Terry.  It’s not my problem.  John is focusing on his job. He is doing very well every day, every moment. He’s the captain of this team and he’s doing his best for the team. He’s been playing well the last two games, he scored at Burnley (last Saturday).  It’s his private life and I don’t want to know nothing about this. I’m interested only in his professional behaviour and his professional behaviour is the best.  Some coaches phone players at home to check on them. I have never done this. I’m interested in the players on the training ground and controlling their behaviour only at the ground.”



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
