My Chelsea future still hanging in the balance – John Terry
John Terry still harbours hope of remaining at Chelsea, despite revealing there is no communication between himself and the club over an extension to his contract.
Following the 5-1 victory over MK Dons in the FA Cup fourth round last weekend, Terry disclosed that talks over a new deal had broken down and he was set to leave Chelsea as a free agent at the end of the season.
However, last Monday, the club declared they had not ruled out the possibility of a future agreement with the 35-year-old captain.
Following Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United, Terry stated there are no ongoing discussions between himself and Chelsea.
“It’s a difficult one. The club’s the most important thing, there’s no communication between myself and the club at the minute. I said what I had to say, that’s how it was,” Terry told Sky Sports.
“I made it very clear I wanted to stay, but nothing has changed from my point of view.”
Terry was denied a penalty in the first half after Daley Blind appeared to block his goal-bound shot with his arm, and he felt the spot-kick should have been award.
“It was going in, I think. He put his hands up and it’s difficult for the referee, but, inside the box, it’s going in, it’s got to be a penalty for me,” the former England skipper added.
Terry was pleased to have rescued a point through Diego Costa’s 91st-minute equaliser, but wants Chelsea to start winning more games as they look to break into the top half.
“We’re in and around that mid-table and teams are dropping points in and around us and we need to start winning, but of late we’re drawing too many games,” he continued.
“They’re a good side so it’s not a bad result, but ideally we need to start winning.”
