John Terry set to pay the price for his role in the ousting of Andre Villas-Boas
Chelsea’s inspirational captain John Terry could be the latest man from the old firm to part ways with the club after talks over a new contract with the Blues were snubbed by the management. The Daily Star reports that club owner Roman Abramovich is not keen on offering the former England captain a new deal at Stamford Bridge. The 32 year old year rubbed his owner the wrong way as he reportedly lead the charge against former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas.
Roman Abramovich is believed to still be aggrieved at Chelsea’s skipper and is looking to turn down any talks over a new deal. It is believed that Abramovich is also looking to lower the average age of the club which could find John Terry get the axe after his contract expires at the end of next season. It is believed that Terry’s advisors were turned down over talks of a new deal by the management on the instructions of their Russian owner.
It will be interesting to see what this decision, if the rumours hold true, will spur among the fans at the club, who have not been in good terms with the management after the appointment of Rafa Benitez as manager.
