Grant: Terry to miss Carling Cup final

Published Add your comment

Avram Grant appears to have ruled captain John Terry out of the Carling Cup final with Tottenham later this month even though the England international is back in training.

Terry insists he will be back to full fitness from his fractured foot in the next fortnight but the Chelsea coach, who watched his side stutter to a goalless draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, thinks the game against Spurs will arrive too soon for his inspirational leader.

"It is very good news about John Terry," said Grant. "He has trained sooner than we thought. He will be fit in around three weeks. I think it will be too soon (for the Carling Cup final) but we will see. He wants to do everything to be as fit as soon as possible."
