Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has given an indication that club skipper John Terry won’t be leaving Stamford Bridge in the summer.
The club veteran’s current deal runs out in the summer, and there have been constant speculations about his future destination. But now, it seems like the 35-year old central defender will be signing a contract extension at the club.
Guus Hiddink, in his press conference, pointed out that Terry has till has still got football left in him and can contribute to the club.
He said: “I must say John [Terry] looks physically fit but also what is important when you are halfway through a season is that he looks fresh in his mind, and he is very eager to train every day and very eager to play.”
“Normally it depends a bit on the physical shape and genes, but most of the time the players when they are coming to 32 their speed is dropping down, and everything is more difficult, but, of course, there are exceptions. It depends on position as well.”
“One day, not now, the body will say ‘slow down a bit’ but I have not seen any of that [from Terry]. I have not been asked yet [about Terry’s contract situation] but these guys are very important for Chelsea.”
