Chelsea boss Di Matteo delighted Terry returning to squad

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is delighted to have skipper John Terry joining his squad in the USA.

Di Matteo says he is keen for his centre-back to get back to business after his court ordeal.

He said: "I have spoken to John and he seemed OK. He'll be joining us in New York.

"He's a strong character who just gets on with things and he's looking forward to being back with the boys.

"I have never been in court so I don't know how it must have felt for John but I guess he would rather have been on a beach than in a courtroom.

"He's faced many difficulties during his career. But he has learned and he has improved with experience and with the help of his family. Being a father has also helped him."
