John Terry has accused Wojciech Szczesny and Luiz Felipe Scolari of talking "complete nonsense" about the Chelsea dressing room.

Terry rubbished Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny's claim that Andre Villas-Boas' sacking as manager proved the Blues' players effectively ran the club. Former Chelsea boss Scolari also warned Villas-Boas' successor "hell" awaited him because of the influence of the squad on owner Roman Abramovich.

Blues captain Terry hit back on Tuesday night ahead of Chelsea's Champions League last-16 second leg against Napoli, saying: "We win and lose together at this club - we're all responsible for the results we have. As for the senior players running this football club, that's nonsense. That's just the perception from outside. Roman and the board make the decisions."
