Chelsea skipper set for new contract to see out career at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will offer captain John Terry a new contract if he maintains his current form, according to Jose Mourinho.
The Blues skipper was a favourite of Mourinho’s in his first spell in charge at Stamford Bridge, and continues to be one of the first names on the teamsheet in the Portuguese boss’ second stint at the helm.
On Saturday, Terry scored his first goal of the season to salvage a point for Chelsea against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and the former England captain did well to limit Spurs to few chances throughout.
Now 32 years of age, Terry’s next deal could be the last of his career, but Mourinho is confident that if the centre back keeps up his form, he will warrant an extended stay.
“I think he always has a future the way he is playing – he has a future in here (at Chelsea), in China, or wherever he wants to have a future,” said Mourinho to the Independent.
“I have always told him from day one – don’t speak (publicly) about signing a new contract, just speak about working very hard from a physical point of view so you don’t have the same kind of problems you have had in the past two years and then you play regularly.
“He is a very good player and very good players have no problems with their contracts.”
