Hiddink unsure of Terry Chelsea future

Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink believes John Terry can play on at the highest level but was unable to clarify if the captain has played his final game for the Blues.

Terry made his 703rd - and, potentially, his last - appearance for Chelsea in last Saturday's 3-2 loss at Sunderland.

The 35-year-old, who made his debut in October 1998, was sent off for the second time this season and will serve a two-game suspension.

The ban rules Terry out of Wednesday's Premier League clash at Liverpool and Sunday's fixture with champions Leicester, when a Stamford Bridge farewell was probable.

Whether it would've been the last game that's not up to me.

When I make a judgement on how he plays and his fitness on his age, he's able to play, he's able to continue.

Where? What the near future is is up to the club, it's not for me to make declarations on that.

Chelsea skipper could return for Spurs - Hiddink

John Terry could have a say in the Premier League title race after all and may return for Chelsea against Tottenham on May 2.

Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink on Friday revealed Terry, who has an Achilles injury, would travel to Bournemouth for Saturday's match, with a view to a return to the squad against title-chasing Spurs.

John is very committed. He was very annoyed about his injury, but now recovering. He desperately wants to be with the team.

I hope he will step up next week and we will see how it will go in the last couple of games.

We play on Monday week. He has to step up, starting next week. He should be training with the group at least by Thursday (to be considered to face Spurs).

Chelsea skipper gets extra treatment for Achilles issue

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

Chelsea captain John Terry says he is undergoing platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) in a bid to recover from his Achilles injury.

The 35-year-old, who is out of contract this summer, has missed Chelsea's last two matches, having only recently recovered from a hamstring problem which kept him out for six games.

Terry, who is expected to be out for another two to three weeks, posted a photo of himself in surgical scrubs on Instagram and used an emoticon of a syringe.

He wrote: "PRP Being injured is the most frustrating thing as a player. Working hard to get back fit."

Terry missed Chelsea's 2-1 Champions League last-16 first-leg loss at Paris St Germain on Tuesday night with the problem sustained in last Saturday's Premier League win over Newcastle.

The 35-year-old skipper's next appearance will be his 700th for Chelsea, who maintain a contract offer might be forthcoming after Terry revealed he would be leaving Stamford Bridge when his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Hiddink said:

He will not be fit for this weekend. I saw him this morning. He was with the physios yesterday, trying a bit on the pitch. (But) still too many problems to be fit for the weekend.

John Terry set to leave Chelsea under a cloud

The Chelsea skipper on Sunday night revealed he would be leaving Stamford Bridge after the club opted not to renew his contract.

Terry said the incoming manager may be able to reverse the decision, while Chelsea suggested a contract offer could be forthcoming and "the channels of dialogue (remained) open".

Yet in making the club's stance public, Terry effectively issued a come-and-get-me-plea to the cash-rich clubs in Major League Soccer, China and elsewhere and it would now take a remarkable U-turn for him to stay at Stamford Bridge for a 19th season.

Terry, who says he intends to leave the Barclays Premier League, is already free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club and may do so before a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho is appointed.

Guus Hiddink, Chelsea interim boss following December's sacking of Mourinho, will address the matter on Tuesday at a media conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Watford, but his caretaker capacity means he has little influence.
