Football manager Carlo Ancelotti has John Terry's backing

8th April 2011 - Alma Shera

Chelsea captain John Terry has insisted that football manager Carlo Ancelotti has the full support of the club's players.

Ancelotti made a fantastic start to life as Chelsea football manager, winning the Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season.

His second campaign also started brightly, but a terrible run of form in the winter has seen the Blues lose their grip on the Premier League title.

However, Terry insists that the players still believe that the Italian is the right man for the job.

"There's been no talk about changing him as far as I'm aware. The players are 100 per cent behind him," he said.

The England captain also backed star striker Fernando Torres to get his first goal for the club and prove to the doubters that he is still a force to be reckoned with.

"He knows he's good enough to play, the players certainly know he's good enough, and he's got our full support," said Terry.
