John Terry Issues Official Statement

John Terry Issues Official Statement


Manchester City target, John Terry has issued a statement via the official Chelsea website.

'There has been a lot of speculation recently about my future and I want to clear this up once and for all. I am totally committed to Chelsea and always have been. Chelsea have also made it clear to me consistently that there was never any intention to accept any kind of offer.'

The Chelsea and England Captain continues...

'When you are linked with any club, or with a manager who I have huge respect for, it will always make headlines but me leaving Chelsea was never a possibility.'

'I know there has been comment that I should have made a statement earlier. However, throughout this period there have been numerous discussions between myself, the owner and the Chelsea Board and we all agreed that the timing of any statement would suit everyone involved in those talks, not any outside influences or agendas.'

Lescott would be a more likely target than Terry. You might try for Kolo Toure too.

An interesting statement for it's lack of real passion and vehamance. I would be a teeny weeny bit worried about it If I were a Chelsea fan as it doesn't portay ant real believe or fight. Maybe it's not all over yet and when he comes back to the UK he will do a complete u-turn.
