Ancelotti: Terry is Chelsea's Maldini

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says John Terry is as important at Stamford Bridge as fellow defender Paolo Maldini was during his time at AC Milan.

Ancelotti has managed both one-club players and left AC Milan this summer, as Maldini retired.

The Italian told BBC London 94.9: "Like Maldini at AC, Terry was born in this club. Like Maldini, he went through the academy at this club.

"And he has a very good feeling for this club, which is very important."
