“When I came back last year he was coming from a difficult period but last season was very good, this season I think he’s been even better than last season. So normally he has time to enjoy his football with us and at the same time he gives us time to think about what next.”

STORY: Jose Mourinho assured Chelsea fans on Tuesday (March 3) that John Terry, subject of a ‘captain, leader, legend’ banner that is on permanent display at Stamford Bridge, will be at the club next season.

The 34-year-old centre half, who scored the opening goal in Sunday’s 2-0 League Cup final victory over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, has a one-year contract that expires at the end of the season.

“What I can guarantee is that he will be a Chelsea player next season, I can guarantee that. To guarantee that is because I know what my board tells me and I also know what the player tells me so no doubts that he’s going to get his contract, no doubts,” manager Mourinho told a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League game at West Ham United.

Mourinho said there would soon come a moment when the club think seriously about Terry’s successor but that time had not yet arrived.

“When I came back last year he was coming from a difficult period but last season was very good, this season I think he’s been even better than last season. So normally he has time to enjoy his football with us and at the same time he gives us time to think about what next,” the Portuguese explained.

Terry joined Chelsea as a schoolboy in 1995 and has made more than 600 appearances at the heart of their defence.

Not only has the former England captain been an imposing presence at the back, he has also been a constant threat at set pieces in opposition penalty areas.

Terry has a remarkable goal record for a defender and Sunday’s effort was his 63rd for Chelsea.
