Chelsea star John Terry has played down reports of a bust-up with manager Jose Mourinho by insisting he’d “chuck himself under a bus” for the Blues boss.
The 34-year-old was reported to be unhappy with Mourinho after he criticised the performances of the long-serving Chelsea captain, alongside several of his team-mates.
Terry has endured a miserable campaign to date after being substituted at half-time against Manchester City and then seeing red against West Brom the following week.
However, the Blues captain insists he has full faith in Mourinho to get Chelsea back to their best – and has also played down reports he could leave the club in the January transfer window.
“I couldn’t do that [move elsewhere]. I could never play for any Premier League club other than Chelsea,” he said.
“Jose’s the best manager I’ve ever had. I’d chuck myself under a bus for him.”
The Blues currently trail City by eight points, with just four games gone in the new Premier League season.
