Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has insisted that captain John Terry is very important to the team and there are no talks over his exit from the club at the end of the season.
Terry has played just five league games for Chelsea this term, only one of which has come since Conte switched to a three-man defence and embarked on a nine-match winning run.
And Conte was quick to laud Terry’s continued impact on the first team from behind the scenes.
He told a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s game against Sunderland, “John is our captain and I think he’s doing a good job.
“He’s not playing and he’s helping me a lot in the changing room, to send a right message to the players.
“He loves this club and I think it’s important now to be focused, I don’t think about the future.
“I’m pleased to know the man, not only the player. I think he’s a really important player for us, if he plays or if he doesn’t play. He’s our captain and he remains our captain. It’s important for me to send the right message, the right spirit in the changing room.
“He comes with us for every game, home and away. It’s very positive. But it’s better to be focused on the present. I think John is able to do different roles in football but now it’s important to be focused, to play.”
