Chelsea players happy Terry staying as captain

Chelsea players are happy John Terry is staying as club captain.

Terry was suspended for four matches and fined £220,000 by the Football Association for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League game between QPR and Chelsea 12 months ago.

Terry decided this week not to appeal the decision, leaving Chelsea to decide what action of their own to take.

Gary Cahill and Juan Mata have both welcomed the news Terry will remain as captain.

Speaking after Saturday's 4-2 victory at Chelsea, Cahill told Sky Sports 1: "Fantastic, I didn't really expect any other outcome to be honest. He has been captain for many years."

Mata added: "He is a great team-mate and a really good guy."
