Chelsea skipper Terry to remain out for 2 weeks due to injury

LONDON (AFP) – Chelsea captain John Terry will be out of action for more than two weeks because of a “muscular problem”, Blues boss Antonio Conte said Friday.

Former England centre-back Terry, 36 next month, has made just one substitute appearance since the London club started a six-match winning run that has taken them to the top of the Premier League.

Terry will miss Saturday s league match against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, with his only start since returning from an ankle injury in the EFL Cup loss at West Ham in October.

“For tomorrow I don t have available John Terry and (John) Obi Mikel,” Conte said. “John has a muscular problem and Obi is recovering from a muscular problem.”

The Italian manager added that Terry could be sidelined for “two, three weeks, maybe”, with a gluteus (buttocks) problem.

In a bid to get some game time, Terry featured for Chelsea s development squad in Monday s 3-2 win over Southampton.

“I m not sure if the injury was in the Under-23 game or the day after,” Conte said.
