John Terry lifts the lid on Rooney studs incident in Instagram Q and A 

John Terry Instagram Q&A

John Terry is one of the most decorated players in the modern Premier League era.

During his career the 41-year-old made 492 league appearances for Chelsea, winning an incredible five league titles, five FA Cups, and the 2012 Champions League with the Blues.

Having played for so long in the English top-flight, there’s no doubt that the centre-back has a few interesting stories to tell about his time as a professional footballer and on Sunday, he shed some light on those during an Instagram Q&A session.

Terry also gave fans a glimpse of his incredible trophy room, which features multiple caps, miniature trophies and several MOTM awards, before clearing up a few rumours on stories that have recently been circulating in the news.

One of those stories included his response to Wayne Rooney’s controversial account of when the striker once went out to hurt a Chelsea player during a game between Manchester United and the London side in 2006.

Angry that the Blues were one point off winning the league title, Rooney decided to change his studs, putting longer grips into his boots and subsequently landed a horror challenge on Terry.

The defender would ultimately need two stitches at half-time but cleared up his side of the incident on his Instagram, admitting that there was no harm done between the pair.

He was asked: “Do you care what Rooney said in his recent documentary about the stud heights to injure a player?”

The Chelsea legend responded: “Of course not.

“We know each other well enough and had many battles over the years.

“Two stitches at half-time, there was no way I wasn’t coming out for the second half to win the league beating Man Utd 3-0.”

He then went on to pay respect to the former United striker for the job he is doing managing Derby County, before also admitting that he too wants to pursue a career in management after returning to Chelsea to take up an academy coaching role last year.

“@WayneRooney is doing an unbelievable job at Derby and deserves so much credit. Great to see young managers doing so well.

“Our generation will have new and fresh ideas, but the main thing is Wayne will be on a level with them, having only recently retired.

“We all want to see Derby stay up; great club.”

Speaking of managers, JT also admitted that, despite still being scared of him, Mourinho was the best manager he played under, and also said that the hardest players he came up against were Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho.

He also used the Q&A to stand up for Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, after former Cardiff manager Neil Warnock issued a scathing review of the defender on talkSPORT last week, claiming that Azpilicueta was “fortunate” to have been such a successful footballer.

“He [Warnock] is miles off it,” Terry said in response. “Laughable comments.

“@CesarAzpi and Ash [Ashley Cole] are the best defenders I have played with. Pure lazy journalism. Anyone who knows and watches Cesar knows he is unbelievable defensively.

“By the way, let’s all appreciate our captain.”

Terry really does bleed Chelsea through and through couldn’t help himself but not have a dig at old rivals Spurs during the Q&A.

When asked which London derby he enjoyed the most, the defender’s response was brutally hilarious.

He said: “Playing against Spurs guaranteed three points.

“They shouldn’t be called London derbies anymore because none of the London teams are anywhere near us.”

Savage stuff from the former Chelsea man.
