End to his Chelsea career?
John Terry played for the first time in 11 games against Peterborough in the FA Cup, and didn’t make it to full time.
Not because he was hauled off by Antonio Conte, but because he was sent off.
The Chelsea skipper is not quite what he once was, and age and injuries have certainly taken their toll on him.
It was his 50th FA Cup appearance as well, and one that he would rather forget. It’s a very real possibility that it may well be his last performance in a Chelsea shirt at Stamford Bridge as well, given the quality in Chelsea’s back line – and the return of Nathan Ake to boot.
The red card for Terry made him responsible for three of the last six red cards Chelsea have received – and when you also consider the fact no other Chelsea player has been sent off this season, it’s not good reading.
Considering the Blues were three goals to the good, there was no reason for Terry to commit the professional foul – something he would most likely flat out deny anyway – after the Alexis Sanchez incident he initially said he hadn’t done anything to the player – and then had to backtrack once the replays were shown.
During the FA Cup game, he also looked shocked and wronged after the officials produced a red card – and did not think he deserved one.
Oh, and the majority of Twitter had approximately zero sympathy for him. Obviously.
