Mourinho hints at new deal for John Terry.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has hinted that the club will offer another contract extension to captain and central defensive leader John Terry, report the Metro, with the experienced campaigner’s current deal set to expire at the end of the season.
Speaking ahead of today’s Premier League victory over Hull City at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho indicated that Terry was still enjoying his time at the club and looking after himself in terms of his fitness and training:
“There are old players at the age of 22. I know some — 22 and old. I know young guys at 36 or 37. John is one of them.”
“I don’t know [how long Terry can play]. You never know when. The important thing is that, tomorrow, it’s the next match and he’s in great condition to play.”
“Our training methodology helps. The way he is taking care of himself is very important too but the most important thing of everything is to be happy.”
“I read a famous neurologist who said, “We docs always say do some exercise, eat properly, be careful with salt, be careful with this protein, but we forget to tell people the most important thing: be happy.”
