Chelsea came a whisker away from winning the 2008 Champions League final against arch-rivals Manchester United. First-half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Frank Lampard meant that the game ended in a 1-1 draw and resulted in extra time. Both sides were unable to score during extra-time and the game subsequently went on penalties.
Chelsea legend John Terry has urged current Blues manager Maurizio Sarri to give more game time to youngsters Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The duo are among England’s most highly-rated young prospects alongside Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho. Both Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi are on the fringes at Stamford Bridge and the club will have to give them assurances over playing time soon or they will likely lose them, especially as the players have plenty of admirers elsewhere.
Sarri now faces a problem especially considering that the Blues now face a difficult challenge to finish in the top four. Does he go with try and tested in order to ensure a top four finish or does he groom the young blood for the sake of the club’s future?
Loftus-Cheek has so far played 13 times in the League for the Blues this season and scored three goals. Hudson-Odoi meanwhile has only played four times in the League. The 18-year-old was strongly linked with a move to Bayern Munich during the January transfer window and is even reported to have handed in a transfer request in order to make such a move happen.
The German giants will likely make another move this summer knowing that the player’s contract is due to expire during the summer of 2020. This essentially means that if Hudson-Odoi does not agree to a new contract soon, Chelsea will have to sell him next summer or they will risk losing him for free at the end of next season.
Terry believes that the West London giants must give both the young players game-time. As reported by the Chelsea website, he said: ‘Chelsea can move forward. They’re a great side and individually they have brilliance in the team. That’s throughout the whole side.
‘We can talk about the two centre-halves being incredible. You look at the boys in front of them; Kante, Barkley, the three players up front. It’s a great team to build around. Go and build upon it.
‘We’ve got people like Hudson-Odoi and it’s important to keep him. Ruben Loftus-Cheek, is he ready? Let’s find out. If we’re not going to win the league then let’s give him a chance in the league. Let’s blood the younger players and see what they’ve got.’
John Terry wants Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri to put more faith in Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the rest of the campaign.
John Terry announced on Sunday evening, via Instagram, that he will no longer play football following 20 years in the professional game.
Maurizio Sarri has said he is open to John Terry returning at Chelsea in a coaching role should the 37-year-old central defender finally decides to hang up his boots.
Following Aston Villa’s failure to renew John Terry’s contract at the end of last season, it didn’t seem like the former Chelsea captain was looking to join a new club but shock rumours linking him to Spartak Moscow started to gather pace. Terry has since put an end to the transfer talk this week by admitting that the move wasn’t ideal for him and his family.
Former Chelsea youth player Declan Rice has disclosed he has patterned his playing style on Blues great John Terry after switching to a centreback role for his current club West Ham.
Former Blues favourite John Terry has spurned reports of his retirement from professional football, saying he is considering all options on the table ahead of the upcoming season. Terry left Stamford Bridge to sign a one-year deal with Championship club Aston Villa last summer but following the Clarets’ failed bid to return to the English top flight, he has decided not to have his contract extended.
Former Chelsea club captain John Terry has paid a fitting tribute to Antonio Conte, who was sacked as manager of the club on Thursday in a decision that was highly expected from ardent fans of the club.
The departure of John Terry has allowed Andreas Christensen the chance to get first-team football at Chelsea, however, it appears the former Blue is still on hand for the 21-year-old’s concerns with his form.
Fans of any club that has ever competed in the UEFA Champions League will tell you that there are no nights as good as Champions League nights. Chelsea players and fans alike have enjoyed plenty of these over the years, especially since Roman Abramovich took over at Stamford Bridge, and here are, arguably, the three very best.
