Terry has endured a miserable start to the season, culminating in a red card against West Brom on Sunday afternoon.
But Pedro, who scored a goal and provided another in the 3-2 win at the Hawthorns, has been impressed with what he’s seen from the former England captain since arriving at Stamford Bridge last week.

"I had a great welcome at Chelsea,” Pedro was quoted as saying by the Independent. “I felt comfortable from the start. John [Terry] is a great captain."
Pedro also hinted that he expects Terry to bounce back from his difficult start to the 2015-16 campaign, adding: “[He] has a very strong mentality.”
Terry will be desperate to prove doubters wrong
Terry, who turns 35 in December, is at serious risk of losing his place in Chelsea’s starting line-up following his poor start to the season.
Jose Mourinho substituted the veteran centre-back at half-time in the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City earlier this month, while the recent red card may have convinced the Portuguese coach that Terry is no longer reliable enough to play week-in, week-out for the Premier League champions.
But Terry will be determined to prove he still has a lot to offer Chelsea by helping the Blues get their season back on track over the forthcoming weeks.
The international break will come at an ideal time for the experienced defender.
