Breaking news, quite literally (tee hee) – According to the Mail, John Terry broke a metatarsal (ah, of course!) in training with Chelsea today, ahead of the weekend’s FA Cup final, and is likely to miss the World Cup finals in South Africa.
Big news, eh. Many fans will call this football karma. And what does this mean for Wayne Bridge? Surely as the door closes for Terry, it swings open for Bridge.
Terry hadn’t been playing particularly well in the latter part of the domestic season, so perhaps it’s not bad news at all. Still, I don’t see how England fans could possibly call it good news – whatever you think of Terry as a bloke, he is a top-class, all-action defender.
This is the latest official line from Chelsea. More details when they hit the web…
UPDATE 1 – Sky is claiming it’s just ligament damage.
UPDATE 2 – Terry should be fit for the FA Cup final. Looks like most of us jumped the gun on this. Be careful what you wish for etc.
