John Terry hits back at Chelsea fan who said he shouldn't be part of Lampard's backroom team

Chelsea legend John Terry has hit back at a fan on social media who criticised his coaching career and said he shouldn't join Frank Lampard's backroom team.

Lampard was appointed as interim boss of Chelsea until the end of the season yesterday just over two years after he was sacked from the same role.

There has been a lot of speculation about who might join his backroom team with journalist Matt Law saying that Joe Edwards, Ashley Cole and Chris Jones will work with the Englishman until the end of the campaign.

It means there's no place for his former captain and teammate Terry which has delighted one fan who took to Twitter to voice his opinion on Terry's coaching career.


Twitter user @bluedaze65, said: "Delighted that Lamps is back and excited by the back room appointments. But please don’t add JT to that list.

"Club legend but Too much golf and not enough coaching experience to warrant inclusion. We’re past the days of barrack-room bombast."

Terry, who's made over 700 appearances for the Blues, was quick to hit back and defend his credentials.

What did he say?


As per the Mail (via GiveMeSport), Terry responded by writing: "Lazy comment. I have all my coaching badges to coach at the TOP LEVEL in the game.

"Spent three years at Villa and WON PROMOTION to the Premier League, improved players and individuals year after year.


"Oh and played at the top level under some of the best managers in the game for 17 years."


The tweet has now been deleted.

His second reply which he hasn't deleted said: "Also unbelievable news for everyone at Chelsea to have Lamps back I know how this works, Frank has his team and if I went into a job I would have mine.

"I won’t have people talk nonsense. Lamps is the best player in our history and this is just what we needed. Super Frank".
