Chelsea skipper Terry sends Di Matteo No16 message

Chelsea skipper John Terry may've been sending a message to former manager Roberto di Matteo before their 0-0 draw with Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea's interim manager Rafael Benitez may have expected some discontent from fans after his appointment, but it appeared that club captain Terry, who is out with a knee problem, sides with the supporters rather than his new boss.

Terry appeared to pay tribute to sacked manager Di Matteo before Sunday's 0-0 draw with Manchester City by taking to the Chelsea pitch to train with the club's fitness staff wearing a No 16 drill top. Di Matteo wore 16 in his playing days for club and country. Terry usually wears No 26.
