Jose Mourinho on John Terry's contract and his own situation


Manager Jose Mourinho reveals captain John Terry will stay at Chelsea for at least one more season.

As per the club policy, the 34-year-old can only be offered a one-year contract extension and Mourinho says the Englishman is ready to commit his future to Chelsea.

"Everybody wants to stay, especially him [John Terry]," Mourinho told reporters on Friday.

"He's been here all his life. He accepted the politics here that after a certain age to go year by year [with contracts]. He accepted it with a smile and as a challenge.

"Last season he won that challenge by performing so well and getting a one year extension.

"This year he is winning the challenge and the right of getting another one year extension. It's what the club wants, what John wants and what is going to happen."

Asked about his own contract situation, the Portuguese said: "I have two more years [on my contract].

"I want to stay, I think the club are happy too. I'm not waiting for offers, not giving any space for speculation or interest from other clubs.

"I don't need a contract. my story is a non-story. I will stay [for as long as] Mr Abramovich wants me to stay."
