BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage has reignited his feud with Chelsea captain John Terry, claiming that the veteran defender was 'awful' against Leicester City.
Speaking to 5 Live Sport, Savage has insisted that he doesn't care if Terry wants to question his opinion again, insisting that Chelsea looked a better side when their skipper was taken off.
Terry has previous with Savage, of course; after receiving criticism from the former Birmingham City midfielder, the Chelsea man responded last month by stating that he wouldn't take criticism from pundits that played at a really bad level, namedropping the Welshman in the process.

However, after the Blues were beaten at the hands of Leicester last night, Savage has once again hit out at Terry for his below par performance.
Savage stated: "I’m going to criticise John Terry again because he’s the captain of that team and they looked a better side when he went off. If he wants to question me again I don’t really care because tonight he was awful once again."
In truth, it has been a torrid time for Terry. Attempting to lead Chelsea right now can't be easy; the players plying their trade in west London just can't find their form and their confidence has taken an almighty hit. Will it improve?
Well, the experienced players, including Terry, must stand up and be counted for. Time-and-time again, however, they have failed to produce the goods this season.
The festive period represents a huge opportunity for Chelsea. They certainly won't be underestimating Sunderland and Watford as they welcome the duo to Stamford Bridge, but they must go about securing maximum points in pursuit of redemption. This can't go on.
