Terry’s superb form saw him named in the PFA team of the season and Mourinho called it a ‘phenomenal’ campaign.

"When I came, I came with that question mark: ‘Which John am I going to find?’ What can he do? Can he improve? Can he become close to the John I know?" Mourinho told ESPN.

"And last season was phenomenal. Phenomenal. I think the best season."

Mournho hopes that Terry will continue his good form when Chelsea face Arsenal on Sunday, August 2 in the Charity Sheild.
