Valencia captain doesn’t want Chelsea star

Published 2 Comments

Valencia captain David Albelda has said he does not want Chelsea captain John Terry at his club.

Quotes emerged earlier in the week from agent Francois Gallardo claiming he was involved in a deal to take the Stamford Bridge great to Los Che, saying the centre-half had instigated the move with a view to making the switch in January.

Now Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo are reporting a radio interview with Albelda where he claims he does not want Terry at Valencia, with the reasoning being the Chelsea star’s wages would be equal to that of several of his team-mates.

“I do not believe we should sign Terry. He will be making more than €6 million net, which is the wage of four Valencia players,” he is quoted as saying.

Terry has had a tumultuous year since he was involved in an altercation with QPR’s Anton Ferdinand, which resulted in a court case where he was charged with racially abusing his opposite number.

Terry was acquitted of the charge, but subsequent disciplinary proceedings from the FA saw him handed a four-match ban – Terry also retired from international football.

The suspension he was given means he will miss Chelsea’s top of the table clash with Manchester United on Sunday.
