Footballers and sportsmen alike are known for their weird pregame rituals, but Chelsea’s own might just take the cake.
John Terry, who has won four EPL trophies, five FA cups, one UCL and one UEL, has revealed that before a match, the players all use one urinal in the dressing room.
The captain also stated the ritual has prevented them from coming out early for matches.
“I am very superstitious and, for me, if we win a game then I add it on to my next superstition,” Terry told The Sun.
“Last season, as you can imagine, it built up to quite a lot. Me and Frank started it a long time ago; in the Chelsea dressing room we have three urinals and me and Lamps started weeing in one.
“We won the game and, for me, that was it, the next week there was a queue of me, Frank and Ash.
“The next week there were four of us and the week after there were five.
“And even now, up until today, you have Cesar Azpilicueta and Cesc Fabregas, we are all there in one big queue.
“A few months ago the club secretary said to me: ‘we have had a few calls from the FA complaining because we have been going out late’ and I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was because we were all waiting to go for a wee.”
