John Terry is 36-year-old, and the Blues skipper’s contract runs out in the summer. Terry was an important part of the team at the beginning of the season, but eventually lost his place in the team after Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 system.
In his post-match press conference, Conte was asked about his captain’s long-term future at the club.
Conte responded: “Now we are in January. First of all, these decisions need to be made with the club, not alone. I’m pleased for John because he’s shown me great commitment when I’ve asked him to play and also when he doesn’t. He’s helping me a lot in the changing room. He’s proving himself to be a good player and, above all, a good man.”
