Mourinho: No England talk with Terry

Jose Mourinho has not broached the subject of England and the World Cup with John Terry.

The Chelsea skipper, who retired from international football amid the Anton Ferdinand affair, is back near his best in Mourinho's second spell in charge.

I've not spoken with him about it (England).

I just tried to recover his status as an important player.

When a player plays for a big team it's because he's good enough to.

Rio Ferdinand plays for Manchester United. If he plays for Man United, he's ready for the national team.

John Terry. When you play for a big team, you are ready for the national team.

– Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
