Leeds striker Bamford: How 'nice' Terry helped me at Chelsea

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford says working with John Terry at Chelsea toughened him up.

Speaking on the Official Leeds United Podcast, the 27-year-old shared how Terry, now Aston Villa assistant coach, helped him develop.

"I have got to be honest and say he was nice," Bamford said. "He was a good captain, put a lot of time aside for the young lads and made you feel welcome."

Terry ended his career without facing Bamford, but the striker remembers how he toughened up all the young players at the training ground.

"In training, he was not scared to, even if you were young, he would go down the back of your heels and stuff.

"So, I think he was good for the youngsters, toughened you up and got you ready, but I have not played him in a match."
