Everton No2 Round stunned to hear retirement of Chelsea's Terry

Everton No2 Steve Round admits he was surprised by the international retirement of Chelsea captain John Terry.

Terry's decision to quit England came as a shock to Round, who has previously worked with the defender in the international set-up.

"I was surprised, like everyone else. I worked with him at England for a couple of years and I found him a terrific captain, whole-hearted and 100% every day, every game," said the Toffees assistant boss.

"I couldn't fault him on any issue when I worked with him personally.

"Obviously he feels it is something he has to do but I can't comment on the reasons why he has done it.

"He will be missed because he's a top player and a top defender."
