Chelsea coach Avram Grant has slammed Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe for labelling captain John Terry´s wages as "obscene" and told the Government to concentrate on helping England´s poverty-stricken citizens instead.

He added that Terry deserved "every penny" of his wages and was angry that Sutcliffe had picked on football players instead of other sportsmen and women or even singers like Madonna.

"I have my opinion about this. John is the captain and you need to learn how he led the team with full commitment in a very difficult time," said Grant.
