Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says John Terry deserves his new contract with the club.
The 34-year old defender signed a one-year extension with the Blues on Thursday which will keep him at Stamford Bridge until at least the end of the 2015/16 Premier League season.
And Mourinho has made it vehemently clear that Terry has earned his new contract.
“This new contract is not to say ‘thank you very much’; it is because John continues to perform,” Mourinho told the club’s official website.
“He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.”
