Terry believes the Italian handled the situation deftly and will expect better co-operation in future.
The Chelsea defender added: “I think the boss has been clever here. Stevie Gerrard has a muscle problem so would have been a big risk in this game. There have been some problems but maybe in future he’ll use this to help him.
“He might go to clubs ahead of a big match and say ‘Remember last time I was lenient. But I really need you this time’.”
