Chelsea captain says Jose Mourinho's contract extension is bad for Arsenal, Man United, Man City

John Terry said Jose Mourinho's contract extension with Chelsea club until 2019 is bad news for title rivals.


Chelsea captain John Terry has expressed his excitement over the contract extension of coach Jose Mourinho calling it the 'best signing of all this summer'.

Terry said Mourinho's undefined is bad news for title rivals.

"He has a lot of great records against clubs and other managers," Terry said.

"It must play on their minds. When other big teams sign big players you do think: ‘Oh.’ But it must be the same for them when Mourinho signs his contract at the club and extends.

"It's great news for the club but terrible news for everybody else because the other managers know that he finds ways to beat teams.

"He knows people inside out, on and off the pitch. Whether you're a player or manager, he does his groundwork. He knows everything.

"He certainly gives you confidence when you do the specific work on the training pitch, the tactics room and in the dressing room before matches.

"We go into games fully aware of other team's strengths, their weaknesses as well.

"But also our weaknesses and ways we can be got at if we don't do things the right way. So he prepares us with every situation and making sure we're ready."

Terry also believes that Mourinho's committment to the club is excellent news for the players and the fans.

"It's excellent news for the squad of players because it brings stability to the club. The fans love him because of what he's done.

"For the whole place stability is key for us, which we have missed over the previous five or six years. I was delighted to have him back and now I am delighted he will stay for a few more years.

"It's stable here, it's calm. But the manager still pushes us every single day. You see him on the training pitch in pre-season. He is leading from the front. He demands the very best from us on a daily basis which is why for me he is the best in the world by a long way. He will keep striving, keep pushing players and getting the best out of them individually and collectively."
