Robbie Savage responds to John Terry jibe on Twitter

Chelsea defender John Terry dismissed Robbie Savage’s criticism earlier today.

Former Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage has taken to social networking site Twitter to respond to Chelsea defender John Terry.

Earlier today, Chelsea centre-back Terry dismissed the criticism he has received from Savage this season.

“I’ve come under criticism, individually, from certain players and individuals, players I’ve looked up to and played alongside,” The Guardian quotes the former England international as saying.

“I’ve taken that on the chin: Rio, Carra, Neville, the very best I’ve come up against in the game. I take that on the chin. When others speak, maybe I don’t take it on the chin.

“When players have not had a career, played at a really bad level in their career … Robbie Savage being one. He’s dug me out a couple of times.

“You take it as a footballer, as an individual. I’ll take it from the Rios, Carraghers and Neville. All day long. From others? Nah.”

Former Wales international Savage has responded to Terry’s comments with a simple tweet.

Savage was referring to Chelsea’s clash against Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League Group G on Wednesday evening.

Jose Mourinho’s side will head into the game on the back of a 3-1 home defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Chelsea, who won the Premier League title last season, could miss out on a top-four finish this campaign.

Jose Mourinho’s side are 15th in the standings at the moment with 11 points from as many matches, just four points above the relegation zone.

The London outfit will take on Stoke City away from home at the Britannia Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday. It will be yet another tough game for Chelsea.
