'Terry will be captain forever'

New Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has said that his captain John Terry will not be going anywhere this summer and, in a statement that posed worrying questions about his understanding of the nature of time, that he will remain captain of the club 'forever'. Chelsea fans may or may not see much difference between an embalmed JT and his performances of the last nine months.

'I think that Terry is a symbol of the team,' he said. 'Naturally he will be the captain next time; he says he wants to be at Chelsea next season and we want to keep him forever. There is no price – he will be captain of Chelsea forever.

'There is no problem. For him, for us, the story continues for Chelsea. For captain I would like to have Terry. He is very close to Paolo Maldini in professionalism and I would like to keep him as captain.'
