Ex-Chelsea stars say Terry deserves new deal

Former Chelsea stars John Spencer and Michael Duberry says John Terry deserves a new contract.

The Blues captain's current deal expires in June.

Spencer told the Daily Mail: "He's in the last year of his contract, but he can play for another five years, given that strikers don't run the channels any more. He doesn't have to chase the likes of Andy Cole. The modern game can be predictable. Nobody wants to see the ball passed over 30 yards any more, because you can't be a connoisseur of the game if you do that. No one runs in behind."

Duberry also said: "He's like our Maldini. You don't know which foot he prefers, then out comes the left and he pings that one. He's an eight or nine every week. We never saw that when he was coming through. We just knew there was a lad who wore shorts and a T-shirt in training no matter how cold it was."
