Published Add your comment

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that captain John Terry is fit to play against Portsmouth in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Terry hurt his right foot in a challenge with striker Daniel Sturridge in training on Wednesday but was given the all-clear after a scan.

Terry returned to training on Thursday and Ancelotti said: "John Terry had a problem Wednesday on his foot but Thursday trained well without problem. He is fit and ready to play on Saturday without problem."

Terry was also delighted with his recovery adding: "I was just running back to goal and Daniel fell on top of me. My foot was caught underneath. I thought it was quite bad initially.

"But once I had the scan, it was just bruising and today there was no problem at all.

"I was delighted when I got the scan results and there was no ligament damage or anything like that. It was just a bit of bruising inside the foot so no problem at all.

"I felt good today, I felt nothing at all, passing the ball or striking the ball. I came straight here to see the doctor and he sent me for a scan straight away. He couldn't tell what it was, it was always going to be a quick scan, nothing serious.

"It was sorted out in a couple of hours but I was a bit scared, I must say. Once I had the scan I didn't wear the boot, it's just protection really.

"The doctor advised me to keep it on. But once I got the scan results I was back in my normal trainer."
