Ex-Chelsea ace Cesc: Terry couldn't stand Spurs

Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits John Terry regarded Tottenham as their most bitter rivals.

The ex-Blues captain played his final match in May 2017 before lifting the Premier League title and leaving for Aston Villa, where he's now assistant head coach.

At the time, Cesc Fabregas was part of Antonio Conte's title-winning side.

He recalled to the Telegraph: "There are certain players who really feel these rivalries and will make sure they do their best to make everybody else understand.

"Before John Terry was going to play his last game for Chelsea, he made a speech in which he told the players to make sure Tottenham would never overtake Chelsea or be better than them."
