Terry card appeal a 'waste of time' - Chelsea boss

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes he has little chance in overturning captain John Terry's red card at the weekend.

Asked if he would appeal the red card, Mourinho said: "Normally it's a waste of time for us, I think we should but normally it's a waste of time.

"No (I don't blame him), it's a ball into the space behind the full back, the full back is pressing high, the striker makes the movement and then (referee) Mr Clattenburg decides it's a red card.

"To speak about the sending off I have to speak about many other things in the game. Some things you can see and some things we can see.

"I prefer just to focus on us."

The 34-year-old this season won his fourth Premier League title, playing every minute of the 38 games for Jose Mourinho's side.

His friend and former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard now moves to MLS with New York City, while Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is joining Los Angeles Galaxy, and Terry has not altogether ruled out a trans-Atlatic switch to the United States.

"I would love to finish my career at Chelsea and maybe there is a time when I look to go to play in America or whatever might be best for my family at the time," Terry told TalkSPORT.

"Hopefully I have a couple of years left at least. I always thought I could get to age of 35 and still (be) playing and I am getting close to that now."
