Chelsea offer Terry time-out to deal with private life

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to allow John Terry some time off to deal with much-publicised matters in his private life. Headlines have provided saturation coverage of Terry's alleged affair with the ex-girlfriend of England team-mate Wayne Bridge and it has been rumoured that further revelations are imminent.

There has been speculation that Terry will be allowed by Ancelotti to miss the FA Cup clash with Cardiff on 13th February to address matters in his private life, which would include spending Valentine's Day with his wife.

Ancelotti said after Chelsea's draw at Hull: "If he needs a holiday I will give him a holiday. If he doesn't need a holiday then he will play against Cardiff.

"It is an issue for me and John Terry, it is not your problem I think."
