Yesterday´s scan results seem to show that there is no significant damage to the cruciate ligaments in his right knee, meaning we can hope to have John Terry back in the Chelsea first team by the end of the month.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and the medical team will conduct further tests over the next two or three days once the swelling has gone down.
This will come as good news to those who were expecting Terry to miss the rest of the season, but does mean that the centre-back will miss key ties such as the trip to Turin to play Juventus in the crunch Champions League tie, and possibly the Premier League clash at home to Manchester City.
Chelsea will miss their captain´s influence on the pitch, but it won’t stretch the squad’s defence too much with Ashley Cole expected to be back to make the squad for the West Bromwich trip on Saturday, and David Luiz expected to have recovered from his tonsillitis, having both missed the Liverpool game.
Thank heaven that our captain and leader will be back sooner than later!
