Jose Mourinho became a widely hated figure all over Madrid after his consistent tiffs with senior players in the squad like Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Karim Benzema and even Cristiano Ronaldo. He consistently benched Casillas during the later half of his last season at the Santiago Bernabeu, preferring Diego Lopez. This infuriated a lot of Madridistas because of the reputation of the Spanish captain, taking nothing away from Lopez who was exceptionally good. Now, crowd favorite John Terry, stands to face the same treatment if the Special One feels the team captain isn’t up to the mark.
John Terry, who is considered by many as Mr.Chelsea, started out his professional career at a tender age of 18 with the Blues in 1998. He started out wanting to be a midfielder, but had to adjust himself to meet the needs of Chelsea’s youth team, who had a lack of central defenders. He has since been a faithful servant to the club he loves so much. In his staggering fifteen years at the club, he has 574 appearances scoring 55 goals, becoming the club’s highest scoring defender ever. Now the injury plagued Terry, has been on the bench quite a bit with Rafael Benitez not feeling that the legend, was up to playing at the top level.
