Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink has revealed that they will not rush back John Terry from his current injury, according to reports from the Daily Star.
Terry sustained a problem during their 5-1 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday, and despite training with the squad on Monday, the former England international was left in London when the Blues travelled to play Paris Saint-Germain last night.
And without his presence, Hiddink’s unbeaten streak since taking over the Stamford Bridge helm was ended by the Ligue-1 champions, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani getting on the score-sheet.
John Obi Mikel scored an important away goal in the 2-1 defeat, but Hiddink already has one eye on their FA Cup clash with Manchester City this Sunday as they attempt to win a trophy.
However, the Dutchman claimed that he is unlikely to risk the 35-year-old against the Citizens to avoid any reoccurring problems in the future.
Prompted whether Terry will be available, Hiddink said: “We’ll see.
“We must be careful.
“We must not go into a situation where he will drop back into a longer period of injury.”
Terry has made 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal.
