Hiddink: Terry Should Get New Contract

John Terry to leave Chelsea

Guus Hiddink believes John Terry deserves a new contract after a beautiful display against Everton.

Terry sent the ball past Courtois to open the scoring, with Mirallas doubling the lead for Everton.

Chelsea fought back with Costa and Fabregas equalising, only for Funes Mori to send Chelsea behind once again.

But Terry proved the hero for Hiddink’s men, finding the net in the 97th minute to rescue a draw for his side.

And Hiddink was delighted with the former England international’s performance and feels the club should offer him an extension to his current deal, which expires at the end of the season.

“John showed his importance, not just with his equalising goal, but with his attitude and the actions he made defensively and offensively,” he said.

“His commitment, in capitals, is huge for this team and this club.

“If I am asked, I will give my honest opinion about his contract. If I say what I’m saying now, spontaneously out of my heart, then you can imagine what I think.

“There’s not much difference between John in 2009 when I first coached him and now. For me, you would have to underline that with data.

“You have to make tests that show he has lost some speed, but with the eye I cannot see that.

“He’s fit, he trains well and takes care of himself, which you have to do at that age. I cannot see that he is slowing down at all. He needs six more games to have played 700 for Chelsea and I think he will make that!”

Terry also feels he has done enough to justify a new contract, insisting that claims he has lost his speed are inaccurate because he “never had legs” in the first place.
