John Terry has been under the microscope this season, with the England captain having been charged with racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during a match at Loftus Road earlier this season.

Now the Chelsea skipper has been accused of something more minor – namely failing to celebrate with Andre Villas-Boas when Ramires put the Blues ahead against Wolves, although Terry merely claims he was worried about the home side restarting the game early.

“I want to make it clear I’m 100% behind the manager,” Terry told the London Evening Standard on Tuesday. “There are no problems behind the scenes.

“The manager has made it clear the players who want to stay here will be here and the ones who don’t can move on. I have seen on the news today that people are saying I didn’t celebrate with the manager for the first goal against Wolves but I did.

“I ran over there and I was worried that Wolves were about to restart and take the kick-off and catch us on the break while we were celebrating. I had a quick celebration with him then after the game as well.”

Indeed, it seems odd that Terry needs to justify whether he celebrated with the manager after a goal was scored, with certain sections of the media out to get Villas-Boas at the moment.
