Ballack will not taunt ex-Chelsea teammates over England defeat

Michael Ballack will not be taunting his former Chelsea teammates after yesterday's drubbing by Germany.

The former Stamford Bridge star wound up John Terry and Frank Lampard with text messages ahead of the game.

But this morning, the new Bayer Leverkusen signing told The Sun: "I was in regular touch with JT and Lampard before the match.

"I sent them texts about what the result would be but just before the game I left them alone.

"Now the final whistle has gone I will wait some time before I speak to them again. It wouldn't be right just now."
