John Terry: Chelsea captain 'could not care less' over substitution controversy



John Terry will decide whether or not he will continue playing football after this weekend's FA Cup final. This is amusing to him.

Chelsea captain John Terry "could not care less" about the furore over his substitution against Sunderland.

Super Eagles winger Victor Moses is still basking in the euphoria of Chelsea English Premier League title as he celebrated with his family. Me and the fans have a wonderful rapport and have done for 22 years. No one - whatever you write, or what someone says, or someone's opinion - can ever get in the way of that. Terry has been at the club for 22 years, played over 700 matches and won 17 trophies at Stamford Bridge.

Conte's men ended up winning 5-1, but they raised some eyebrows in the 26th minute when Terry was substituted and given a guard of honour from his teammates in the process.

The former England defender has not been a regular starter for Chelsea this season but his personality inside the locker room is regarded as one of the keys for the Blues' Premier League triumph. No, what I want is to win the next game.

Although the Premier League has said the substitution did not contravene any of its rules, the FA has opened dialogue with bookmakers to establish the chain of events.

"I only put money on this because I thought this is surely going to come in", said the punter, who wished to remain anonymous.

"I haven't played this year". I am very grateful to them, and it was something I will never forget.

"It's been football, football, football and I need to get away and be clear and know it's the right thing I'm doing".

"I don't want to kind of make a knee-jerk decision and then kind of regret it later", Terry said.

The club says it would be "inappropriate" to celebrate with fans near its Stamford Bridge ground in south London Sunday and is loathe to "divert important resources" given the increased security threat following Monday's tragedy.

"I really feel sorry for him because I think he's shown outstanding qualities, and I think he has handled the whole situation".
