John Terry seems to hit back at former Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez

Speaking after sealing the title against Crystal Palace, the captain had something to say to his former boss.

Chelsea captain John Terry has hit back at former boss Rafa Benitez to Sky Sports.

The Blues stalwart has had an excellent season, leading his team to their first Premier League title in five years and also earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year to boot.

Speaking after the win over Crystal Palace that secured the title, Terry seemed to take aim at Benitez for his comments when he was Chelsea boss during the 2012-13 season after the sacking of manager Roberto Di Matteo.

While the Spaniard was in charge, Terry made just 14 Premier League appearances, his lowest tally ever, and the defender was keen to put the manager in his place, without naming names.

"One person said I couldn't play twice in a week. He knows who he is. I'm still here, still fighting,” he said.

Aside from his comments about Benitez, the captain was obviously keen to enjoy his side’s latest success.

The Blues have led the way throughout this campaign and have sealed the title with some dogged displays in recent weeks, and Terry admitted that seeing other teams' success was painful, but he and his side will enjoy this all the more for it.

“We're going to enjoy today,” he added.

“The first time is very special obviously, (but) when you go four or five years without winning it and you see teams (winning the league) and you've grafted all year and you get nothing it really hurts.”
