Chelsea's Terry thrilled with 'incredible' recovery from knee surgery

Chelsea captain John Terry is over the moon with his brilliant recovery from minor knee surgery.

The England centre-back was ruled out for around two months prior to undergoing an operation on the knee he initially injured in a FA Cup clash with Portsmouth at the beginning of the year which he aggravated before a recent Champions League fixture in Napoli.

But Terry was jogging two days after the surgery and was also included on the bench for last night's FA Cup fifth round replay win over Birmingham Cit, admitting he was amazed at how quickly he had recovered.

"Once I had the operation, I was literally jogging about after two days, which was incredible," he told Chelsea TV.

"It's down to getting over it mentally as well, that you've had an operation.

"Once you're clear of that, you can push yourself on.

"I said to the physios, the way things were here, I just wanted to push myself and be involved and try to get back as quickly as possible."
