John Terry opens up on his Chelsea ‘end goal’ as Paul Merson predicts major twist on final day

Here is your Chelsea morning digest on Sunday, May 23.

Super League talks planned for Blues

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are set to hold talks with the Premier League next weeks over a potential punishment after last month’s controversial European Super League plans.

The proposal of a ‘breakaway’ league was met with widespread condemnation and were scrapped by the six English clubs within 48 hours of being announced to the public.

However, the Blues, along with the other five Premier League clubs, could still face a punishment for their actions and are set to find out exactly what that will be next week.

Terry reveals Chelsea ambition

John Terry has revealed that his “end goal” is to one day manage Chelsea.

Terry is currently Dean Smith’s assistant manager at Aston Villa, but he has now admitted he is ready to take a step up.

“My ambition is very, very clear,” the Chelsea legend told The Times. “There’s an end goal for me and that’s managing Chelsea Football Club.

“My team will be winning — hopefully — very honest, very organised, very well drilled, very well prepared and with a back-four.

“I look at Lamps [Frank Lampard] and Stevie [Gerrard] and the success they’ve both had. Lamps in his first season at Chelsea, and what Stevie’s done up at Rangers is unbelievable. l probably wasn’t ready to go into coaching then. I am now.

“But I’m not just going to jump into anything. I’ve turned down two jobs since I’ve been here.

“Decent-sized clubs. But it’s going to take something special for me to leave here. I’ve got one more year left at Villa. I’m in a privileged position because I’m in no rush. I want to be a No 1 but I’ll get there at some point.”

Merson predicts final day twist

Paul Merson thinks Chelsea deserve to finish in the top four but does predict a twist on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues go into the final round of fixtures sitting in third-place and Merson has been speaking about what he expects from this unpredictable campaign.

He wrote for The Star: “Chelsea and Leicester deserve to finish in the top four in my opinion – not Liverpool.

“And I still think there could be a big twist coming on the final day because I don’t think all three clubs are going to win.

“Liverpool have under-performed horribly this season. They’ve turned it on at the right time, but they shouldn’t even be in the race here.

“Chelsea and Leicester have had great seasons. If Leicester miss out after what happened last year the disappointment will be so bad.

“But at least those players can look back one day tell their grandkids they won the FA Cup.”
