Wayne Bridge Speaks Publicly About John Terry Handshake Snub For The First Time

Can you believe it. Wayne Bridge's infamous snub of John Terry's handshake was over seven years ago and the former Chelsea and Manchester City defender has finally spoken about the incident.

Back in January 2010, John Terry was booed at Turf Moor after it was revealed that he had cheated on his wife with Wayne Bridge's girlfriend, and when he was given a yellow card, fans prompted fans to cheer 'same old Terry, always cheating' and 'Chelsea, wherever you may be, don't leave your wife with John Terry'.

The Chelsea captain had an affair with Bridge's wife at the time Vanessa Perronce and when Chelsea faced Manchester City at Stamford Bridge one year later, the pair met on rather awkward terms.


Bridge has now spoken to the press about the incident for the very first time, and it reveals a lot about that incredibly publicised story:

"The most disappointing aspect of it all is that I'm probably more famous for not shaking someone's hand than I am for playing football," Bridge." told The Sun.

"I get abuse walking down the street now and I let it go in one ear and out the other. It's a handshake after all, nothing more.

"It's so hard for me to talk about the scenario because there would be other stuff to divulge. But what I will say is that I could not believe the atmosphere at the game that day and the reaction of my team-mates, in the build up to the match and during"


14 months later, Bridge once again snubbed a handshake from John Terry when he was playing for West Ham United:

Bridge appeared on TV show I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here last year, but never spoke about the handshake despite media attention.

Thoughts on the incident?

Let us know.
