There could be some good news for many Chelsea fans as it has been revealed that John Terry is set to make his long-overdue comeback for us this week, as he prepares to play for the Under-21’s on Thursday.
The Chelsea captain has been out through injury since November 11 following a collision with Luis Suarez in the first half of the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Liverpool and he has been missed in the heart of the defence.
The great man was initially supposed to be out for just a few weeks, but complications and bruising has meant he has spent too long sitting on the sidelines.
But Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez is now hopeful Terry could return to action for the weekend’s trip to Stoke, should he come through the match against Fulham on Thursday without a negative reaction.
Speaking to Sky Sports Benitez said: “If he feels OK, at least we can start considering him.
“It depends on his reaction [after the Under-21 game]. Obviously Thursday will be a different kind of game but we will see how he feels.
“The good thing he is now training so now he can carry on. We will see how he feels on Thursday and hopefully he can play more minutes in the short term so we will see.
“At least that is a positive thing because before he was just doing the warm-up. Now he is training and can play so I think we are obviously closer.”
There are footballers that put their heart and soul into games and Terry is certainly one of them. He will put his body on the line to make sure we get the result we need.
I will be glad to see him back playing in a blues shirt and I’m sure many of you feel the same.
The man is a legend and is still one of the best central defenders on the planet.
