Does John Terry have a few more years to give Chelsea? Guus Hiddink certainly thinks so. The 35-year-old captain is suspended for the remainder of the season after getting sent off 2 games ago.
Speculation continued that he wouldn’t get the sending off he deserved but now he won’t be needing a sending off. It was thought that there is a chance he will not play for the club again when his current deal expires in June.
However, more talks were held between Terry’s representatives and the club yesterday. Guus Hiddink may well be looking to side with the thousands of fans that were singing “John Terry we want you to stay” at Anfield earlier this week against Liverpool.
The game ended in a dramatic fashion as Christian Benteke headed home a stoppage time equalizer for the Reds. It can be noted that Chelsea decided to show up for this game and it’s a pity it’s so late in the season to change their fate.
Hiddink said: “Let’s wait to see what happens in the upcoming days on this issue.Of course John is in contact every day with us and he has made such a long career that the fans appreciate him highly.
“We will see regarding his near future, let’s wait a bit. Hopefully both are wise parties and let’s hope for the best. It is difficult to see which direction it is going.”
It appears there is something that could potentially happen. If not, Terry is being eyed by both the Chinese League and the MLS. Terry has not looked his best this season, like most of the Chelsea squad to be honest. However, he remains a pivotal part of their history winning and e could still offer another year of his leadership and defensive presence. Will Chelsea give him that chance?
