I’m playing well, insists Blue Terry

Many have been critical of the form of the 29-year-old Blues

skipper, who was stripped of the England captaincy following

tabloid revelations surrounding him and the former partner of Wayne

Bridge. The knives were out after Chelsea lost 2-1 to Everton, but

Terry insists that, aside from that game, his form is holding up.

He told The People: “There are not many players who come out

publicly and hold their hands up like I did after the Everton game.

“I also had an air-kick at Wolves but, apart from that, I am

pleased with my form this year. “In the first half of the season I

was in really good form but after a couple of bad results, and what

has gone on in recent weeks, the spotlight has been on me. But I

feel as though I am playing well.” Terry was content with his

performance in the international friendly against Egypt on

Wednesday, his first performance since losing the England

captaincy, and felt he continued to play a leadership role. “I

played well against Egypt,” he said. “It was important for me to

come through that with a good performance. “I think I did carry on

as a leader against Egypt. I think anyone who was watching the game

could see that.”
