Chelsea boss calm on futures of Terry, Lampard and Cole

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists the club will remain patient regarding the futures of three key veterans.

Captain John Terry, star midfielder Frank Lampard and left-back Ashley Cole are all out of contract this summer and are yet to come to agreements with the Blues.

On Sunday, the threesome could have made their final appearances at Stamford Bridge so underwent a lap of thankfulness in front of the Chelsea faithful after the 0-0 draw with Norwich City.

However, Mourinho has not ruled Terry, Lampard and Cole staying in west London past the end of the current season.

"They are with the club on their future," said Mourinho.

"Now it's time to wait a little bit. The summer is a long summer for us.

"For the players involved in the World Cup it's a different story, but for us, as a club, it's a long time to be calm and to sit and to discuss and to analyse options and the market and possibilities."
