Chelsea manager won’t rush injured star back for Man City clash

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.
