Jose Mourinho admitted in his post-match press conference that captain John Terry, who had been subbed at half time, “was not dancing in the dressing room” but the Portuguese insisted that Terry didn’t react poorly to the substitution.
Chelsea FC manager Jose Mourinho explained his decision to withdraw captain John Terry at half-time in yesterday’s 3-0 humiliation to Manchester City. The 53-year-old substituted his captain for the first time in 177 Premier League matches and explained that the decision was taken as he wanted to bring on his fastest defender in Kurt Zouma.
However, when Mourinho was quizzed about the reaction of the 34-year-old at being substituted, Mourinho replied in his usually sarcastic manner. Chelsea take on West Brom at the Hawthorns next, looking to win their first match of the season having already lost one and drawn the other.
