Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is apparently unconcerned about the international future of his captain John Terry, insisting that it's "not his problem."

The former England captain retired from international duty after being stripped of his role as skipper in the wake of his trial for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. 

He was subsequently cleared at his formal hearing, but the FA held their own investigation and banned him for four matches after finding him guilty. He subsequently chose to retire, citing that his position had become untenable. 

However, after England's recent defeats to Chile and Germany at Wembley, some have suggested that he should reconsider his retirement. 

His club manager - Mourinho - though, is not interested in such talk. 

"That's not my problem. I'm not [an international manager]. I'm Chelsea manager and I don't say I don't care about international teams, because I care, and I wish them to do well when they have my players," he was quoted by The Metro.

"But that's not my problem. John Terry's English, Roy [Hodgson] is England manager, Roy makes the decisions."

In the aftermath of the defeat to the Germans, Hodgson immediately appeared to rule out a return to the national side for Terry.

"We've played nine games without him, qualified unbeaten. Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka have both done a good job at centre-back," he was quoted by the Daily Mail.

He may be forced to reconsider, though, with Terry looking back to his commanding best this season at the heart of Chelsea's defence.
