John Terry's nine-word verdict on touchline fight vs Leicester

John Terry was a proud Chelsea fan whilst watching their 2-1 win over Leicester City on Tuesday night.

Second half goals from Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho sealed a vital three points for Thomas Tuchel’s side, as they are now on the brink of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League.

However, the biggest talking point at Stamford Bridge wasn’t the result.

Rather it was the incident that took place during the closing stages of the clash when a large-scale melee broke out on the touchline after Leicester’s right-back Ricardo Pereira had fouled his former teammate and current Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell.

Almost every player and substitute got themselves involved, including goalkeepers Edouard Mendy and Kasper Schmeichel who attempted to and bring the situation under control.

In the end, it was Leicester substitute Daniel Amartey, who had not even stepped off the bench, was booked by referee Mike Dean for his involvement.

Of course, the Ghana international isn’t exactly a popular figure amongst Chelsea players or fans following the FA Cup final.

That may have been the fuel for the touchline fracas and a certain Blues legend loved to see it unfold.

In fact, Terry took to social media and delivered his verdict on the melee by comparing it to a previous incident involving Chelsea from the 2015/16 season.

“I love this,” he wrote on Instagram. “Reminds me of the Spurs game.”

“I did not talk about it. I know there was an incident but I didn’t talk about it before the match or in any meetings, I don’t do this but I think the players were well aware,” Tuchel said. “I’m not into these things too much because it can sometimes give you too much energy, too much a feeling for revenge. I don’t like this at all

“We prepared for a super important match and did what we do, how we play football. We wanted to do it at the highest level possible and this is what we did. We needed the intensity and hunger that make us a difficult team to play.

“There’s nothing more I can say about it.”
