Chelsea pleased Terry could play

Published Add your comment

John Terry was only cleared on Tuesday afternoon to play for Chelsea in their Capital One Cup thrashing of Wolves, assistant boss Eddie Newton revealed.

Newton insisted after the Blues' 6-0 win at Stamford Bridge that manager Roberto Di Matteo always intended to pick his captain for the third-round clash. But Newton admitted it was not certain he would be able to do until Terry was allowed home on the second day of his Football Association racism hearing.

The defender left Wembley at 1.15pm on Tuesday and asked when the final decision over his involvement had been taken, Newton said: "This afternoon."
