John Terry avoids what was feared as a probable season long injury as the Medical Staff of CFC declared that Terry will be out for “Weeks” and not out for Months.
The Chelsea captain left the game midway through in a stretcher after a collision with the Liverpool striker Suarez in the 1-1 draw last Sunday at Stamford Bridge. It came as an anti-climax to the home crowd at the Stadium as Terry had scored the only goal for Chelsea in the match just minutes ago.
An announcement on Chelsea’s official twitter account read: “MRI Scans reveal no significant damage to John Terry’s cruciate ligaments. He will be out weeks rather than months.”
The Chelsea center back was making his first appearance in over a month after facing a Domestic ban.
He will be missed for sure as a series of tricky and hard fixtures await the Blues including matches against both the English and Italian Champions-Manchester City and Juventus in EPL and Champions League respectively.
With David Luiz also facing minor injury worries, Chelsea will be left with only Cahill as their first choice center back with Ivanovich also competent in filling up that role.
