Chelsea skipper Terry tells Abramovich: Ancelotti must stay

Chelsea skipper John Terry has thrown his support behind manager Carlo Ancelotti. Terry hopes he will remain to at least see out the last season of his three-year deal.

"He's got my full support. I love Carlo," Terry told The Sun.

"He won the double in his first year and this season the injuries and releasing players has been tough for him."

Chelsea released veteran midfielders Michael Ballack, Deco and Joe Cole last summer and Terry believes their departures left the club short on numbers in their title defence.

"When (Jose) Mourinho was here we had a big squad but we miss that," he added.

"Somewhere in between where we are, and what we had, would be ideal."
