Chelsea skipper John Terry has denied reports a blow-up with Jose Mourinho hastened the former manager's exit from Stamford Bridge.

Terry told Icon magazine: "There was a row after the Rosenborg game but there is no problem between us now. We had an argument, like you do sometimes.

"The next day we had a film premiere and then the manager was sacked. I came in and saw him and he was fine with me. Even now we still keep in contact.

"There never was a problem. I didn't want to get rid of him. He is probably the best manager I have worked with."
