Chelsea legend John Terry has revealed that Rob Wollaston is the greatest talent he ever saw at Chelsea who failed to live up to his potential.

When asked about players who never fulfilled their potential at The Blues, Terry replied: “Probably a boy called Rob Woollaston at Chelsea.

“He was like a midfielder/winger, had so much ability.

“I still know Rob now, but mentally didn’t have that to go and push himself.”

Terry added: “He got chose to train with the first team at a really young age, 17 or 18, did really well and Gullit told him he was going to play in the first team in a cup game.

“He then phoned up on the day of the game and said he was sick.

“All of us, if we were sick or felt like we were at the end of the world, we would have still gone and played the game, we wouldn’t have given up that opportunity.

“He actually done it two or three times and he was just not mentally ready for the game, but ability-wise, incredible.”
