A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.
Chelsea captain John Terry has ruled himself out of an England comeback ahead of the World Cup.
Terry has been one of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League this season, which has created speculation he could sneak into Roy Hodgson’s squad for Brazil.
“100 per cent I’m going to be on my holidays this summer, I’ve made that very clear. My feelings are very strong on it, maybe people don’t realise that,” he’s quoted by the Metro.
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has admitted he’s wary of the threat Chelsea pose ahead of the Champions League game this evening.
The Blues played defensively in the first game to stay in the tie, which ended 0-0 heading into the match at Stamford Bridge.
“That’s already a massive statement of our quality and my players are excited and keen. The reality is that we face a team with a lot of individual talent —Hazard, Willian, Eto’o, Torres —and forward-thinking players,” Simeone told the press.
Jose Mourinho says he is calm ahead of the Blues’ clash against Atletico Madrid.
Mourinho puts that calmness down to the fact that he trusts his players to set up a Champions League final clash in Lisbon against the side he coached last season, Real Madrid.
“It's a game where everyone needs to be at the top level, but the players are more important than me. During the 90 minutes, the players are more important than the manager. I trust them. I trust them a lot and that helps me to be calm,” Mourinho told the press.
