Manager Antonio Conte makes bold statement on who will be his main man at Chelsea


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has again confirmed that John Terry will continue to be the club's captain.

The Englishman was expected to leave Stamford Bridge but was offered a new one-year contract in May.

He was forced off in Chelsea's 4-2 friendly win over Werder Bremen on Sunday and will be assessed ahead of this week's Premier League opener against West Ham United.

"John is in the history of this club. He can explain what it means to wear this shirt, this badge," Conte told reporters.

"He is the captain, he can transfer messages. To have a good relationship with John and the other players is important – and always with respect. I give that – but I demand that.

"If he has the will to go every day to training, to go away from his wife and children for many days. John can do this – because I see he has this will."
