Chelsea D Terry may be facing back operation

Dec 26, 2006 - 4:39 PM LONDON (Ticker) - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed England captain John Terry may need surgery on his back injury.

Terry has missed the last four matches with the problem and Mourinho now has said initial predictions the defender would be out for two weeks were optimistic.

"I've no idea when John Terry will be back," Mourinho said after Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Reading. "I want John to be back at soon as possible. The medical department will have to make a decision soon.

"The medical department have said surgery might be a possibility. I want them to make a quick decision. I don't know how long he will be out for - three days, three weeks or three months, I don't know."

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
