Chelsea captain John Terry has told fans that new boss Avram Grant is the future - and Jose Mourinho the past.

"There is always a lot more to come from Chelsea but Avram is trying to do his bit along with Clarke and Brendan Rogers [reserve team manager]," he said.

"We fully respect Grant and are fully behind him. We have to be as we want to move up the table. The fans will show their support for him. They are travelling all over the world for us. I have spoken to them and they are fully behind us and Avram.

"Obviously they have great feelings for Mourinho and will always sing his name. Avram is a move forward and they will love him in the future."
