John Terry, the iconic figure of Chelsea, responded to a social media fan who criticized his coaching career and advised him against joining Frank Lampard’s backroom team.
Following Lampard’s appointment as interim boss at Chelsea until the end of the season, there has been a lot of speculation about who might be joining his backroom team.
Journalist Matt Law suggested that Joe Edwards, Ashley Cole, and Chris Jones will be working with Lampard until the end of the campaign.
One fan expressed his happiness on Twitter as the former captain and teammate Terry is not joining the team, stating his opinion on Terry’s coaching career.
Twitter user @bluedaze65, said: “Delighted that Lamps is back and excited by the back room appointments. But please don’t add JT to that list.
“Club legend but Too much golf and not enough coaching experience to warrant inclusion. We’re past the days of barrack-room bombast.”
Terry, who’s made over 700 appearances for the Blues, was quick to hit back and defend his credentials.
What did he say?
As perthe Mail(viaGiveMeSport), Terry responded by writing: “Lazy comment. I have all my coaching badges to coach at the TOP LEVEL in the game.
“Spent three years at Villa and WON PROMOTION to the Premier League, improved players and individuals year after year.
“Oh and played at the top level under some of the best managers in the game for 17 years.”
The tweet has now been deleted.
His second reply which he hasn’t deleted said: “Also unbelievable news for everyone at Chelsea to have Lamps back I know how this works, Frank has his team and if I went into a job I would have mine.
“I won’t have people talk nonsense. Lamps is the best player in our history and this is just what we needed. Super Frank”.
