Ex-Chelsea coach Wilkins says Terry should be considered for England recall

Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins says John Terry should be considered for a recall to the England squad.

Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins says John Terry should be considered for a recall to the England squad.

This season has seen Terry back to something approaching his best under the returning Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

Wilkins told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme: "Gary Cahill hasn't been in the starting XI for Chelsea and I think Jose [Mourinho] prefers David Luiz and John Terry, who I must say if Roy could have a little chat with [him he should, because] he was absolutely superb yesterday against Cardiff.

"I don't think we are blessed with too many centre-halves and if we could persuade John to have another go at [playing for England we should, because] he was superb yesterday.

"I have no idea [if he would be interested in an England return] because I haven't had the conversation with him. But it certainly would be one I'd be having if I was the England manager.

"I have absolutely no idea how it ended with him in the dressing room. I've never had the conversation with John. But all I can say is his reading of the game was absolutely superb yesterday."
