â€˜Everyone is fully behindâ€™ Mourinho, - John Terry
John Terry says â€œeveryoneâ€™s fully behindâ€ Jose
Mourinho at Chelsea and he would â€œtake this squad
over anyâ€ after the draw in Dynamo Kiev.
The Blues captain was restored to the centre of
defence for last Saturdayâ€™s 2-0 defeat of Aston
Villa â€“ just a third Premier League win from nine
games â€“ and he started the 0-0 draw in the
Ukraine on Tuesday night.
â€œThe win at the weekend felt unbelievable in the
dressing room afterwards,â€ Terry told Chelsea TV .
â€œIt had been a few weeks, but when they come
about it was nice.
â€œWe want that feeling week after week again, put
ourselves on a run of games and thatâ€™s what weâ€™re
trying to do.
â€œWe are a great side and we will get there with the
hunger and the ambition that is in the squad.
â€œYou donâ€™t win trophies year after year without that
hunger in the belly. We are collectively together,
the players, the manager and the fans and we will
be all right.
â€œWhen the chips are down, Iâ€™d take this squad over
any. I know the players very well. Iâ€™ve been in this
situation before, Iâ€™ve seen it happen.
Best manager in the world
â€œWeâ€™ve got a great squad of players. More
importantly weâ€™ve still got the best manager in the
â€œEveryoneâ€™s fully behind him. Thereâ€™s stories and
this and that and everything else, but believe me
â€œThe fans were unbelievable again at the weekend,
so (I) thank them.
â€œTheyâ€™re going to be pivotal in our comeback and
our climb up the table. Urging them to continue and
believe in the players, because I certainly do.â€
Chelsea sit third in Champions League Group G
after the draw, following an opening defeat of
Maccabi Tel-Aviv and loss at Porto, who lead the
standings ahead of unbeaten Dynamo.
The Blues might have returned from the NSK
Olimpiyskyi with all three points had Cesc Fabregas
been awarded a first-half penalty, while Willian and
Eden Hazard each hit the woodwork.
With Dynamo and Porto to visit Stamford Bridge, on
November 4 and December 9 respectively, Terry
believes progress to the knockout stages is very
much in Chelseaâ€™s control.
â€œDisappointed not to come away with the three
points,â€ Terry added.
â€œFirst half we probably created enough chances to
win the game.
â€œThe positive side of it is another clean sheet, a
point and itâ€™s in our hands now going back to the
â€œTheyâ€™re a good side going forward and have a lot
of good players. It was going to be tough.
â€œTwo games left at home which we must win and
itâ€™s in our hands. Those nights at the Bridge are
what we want and what we look forward to.
â€œThe next game at home in the Champions League
against (Dynamo) is a must-win game for us.
Hopefully get a win there, build upon that and
qualify through the group.â€
