ALLARDYCE: The 61-year-old may bring back Terry

ALLARDYCE: The 61-year-old may bring back Terry

New England boss Sam Allardyce is dominating much of the national press this morning, including his comments on Chelsea captain John Terry.

Allardyce is open to the potential of the defender returning to England duty despite the fact his last cap was in September 2012.

Jamie Jackson, of The Guardian, writes: “Sam Allardyce has said John Terry could return for England, although the new manager accepts this also depends on the defender’s desire to do so.

“Asked if it is possible the 35-year-old Terry will play for England again, Allardyce said: “Maybe so. I think it depends on what John said. Maybe if I get the opportunity I might have to give him a ring but until I come to that selection or that process, we’ll wait and see.

“With regard to the FA, Allardyce would be clear to select Terry, who has started both of Chelsea’s Premier League matches this season under Antonio Conte.”
