Chelsea's Terry: England players 1005% behind Ferdinand

Chelsea and England captain John Terry was left defending Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand during yesterday's media conference.

Terry reiterated the support of the squad for Ferdinand after a poor performance against Ukraine as he stressed the need to cut out mistakes.

He said: "We have looked at things when we have made mistakes, not just the defensive errors, and the manager won't leave anything unturned.

"I don't want to get into the issue of Rio but the other players are 1005% behind him. We all make mistakes.

"He is a massive player in the squad and so important to us. He is the one who can't wait for this game and is looking forward to put his performance in. His drive and desire to win is massive."
