‘Everyone is fully behind’ Mourinho, - John Terry

John Terry says “everyone’s fully behind” Jose

Mourinho at Chelsea and he would “take this squad

over any” after the draw in Dynamo Kiev.

The Blues captain was restored to the centre of

defence for last Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of Aston

Villa – just a third Premier League win from nine

games – and he started the 0-0 draw in the

Ukraine on Tuesday night.

“The win at the weekend felt unbelievable in the

dressing room afterwards,” Terry told Chelsea TV .

“It had been a few weeks, but when they come

about it was nice.

“We want that feeling week after week again, put

ourselves on a run of games and that’s what we’re

trying to do.

“We are a great side and we will get there with the

hunger and the ambition that is in the squad.

“You don’t win trophies year after year without that

hunger in the belly. We are collectively together,

the players, the manager and the fans and we will

be all right.

“When the chips are down, I’d take this squad over

any. I know the players very well. I’ve been in this

situation before, I’ve seen it happen.

Best manager in the world

“We’ve got a great squad of players. More

importantly we’ve still got the best manager in the


“Everyone’s fully behind him. There’s stories and

this and that and everything else, but believe me

everyone’s together.

“The fans were unbelievable again at the weekend,

so (I) thank them.

“They’re going to be pivotal in our comeback and

our climb up the table. Urging them to continue and

believe in the players, because I certainly do.”

Chelsea sit third in Champions League Group G

after the draw, following an opening defeat of

Maccabi Tel-Aviv and loss at Porto, who lead the

standings ahead of unbeaten Dynamo.

The Blues might have returned from the NSK

Olimpiyskyi with all three points had Cesc Fabregas

been awarded a first-half penalty, while Willian and

Eden Hazard each hit the woodwork.

With Dynamo and Porto to visit Stamford Bridge, on

November 4 and December 9 respectively, Terry

believes progress to the knockout stages is very

much in Chelsea’s control.

“Disappointed not to come away with the three

points,” Terry added.

“First half we probably created enough chances to

win the game.

“The positive side of it is another clean sheet, a

point and it’s in our hands now going back to the


“They’re a good side going forward and have a lot

of good players. It was going to be tough.

“Two games left at home which we must win and

it’s in our hands. Those nights at the Bridge are

what we want and what we look forward to.

“The next game at home in the Champions League

against (Dynamo) is a must-win game for us.

Hopefully get a win there, build upon that and

qualify through the group.”
