JOHN TERRY has defended Jose Mourinho's treatment of Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne after the Special One sold them during his second spell in charge of Chelsea.
He told Dubai Eye Radio: “In my generation now I see people like Salah and Kevin De Bruyne come through and not being able to match his standards at the time.
“Now they were very talented but very young individuals as well. But Mourinho didn't have time to put them in the team or take out a Duff or Robben because we was winning every single week and his job is on the line.
“So, like I said before if you come in and you are 10 or 20 per cent below the standard of Duff and Robben who were scoring 20 goals a season each. You are not gonna make that team, no chance.
“Fair play to them they've gone away elsewhere and proved they're good enough but at that present time they wasn't good enough for Chelsea.”
FORMER Chelsea star Shaun Wright-Phillips has urged Arsenal to sack Unai Emery.
The son of Gunners legend Ian told Sportingbet: ” I think that it’s time for Emery to leave Arsenal, they’ve had a poor start to the season and I think something needs to change.
“My dad is going to kill me for saying that, but he’s in the jungle so I should be safe!
“Growing up, Arsenal were always such a big team, they were dominant and would always give you a tough game.
“They seem to have lost something of that steel and it makes me sad to see, if I’m being honest. As well as the manager, there are deep issues that need to be addressed.
“Arsenal have been crying out for a defender for years, someone in the Tony Adams, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, even Ledley King mould who can shore up their defence.
“Their defensive signings haven’t addressed any of their issues but you wonder anyway if this type of defender would want to join Arsenal at the moment.
“They’re not close to winning anything and are going to struggle to keep hold of their best players, like Aubameyang who will want Champions League football, let alone sign new quality players.”
