Chelsea lie in third place in the table, 14 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City and three behind Manchester United.But Terry believes Chelsea still have the second best squad in the division.
They’ve got some great individual players, great going forward, great defensively, a great midfield and I think, bar City that are setting the tone and the tempo of the Premier League, the best squad of players in the Premier League,” he said.
Terry also gave his backing to one of his former coaches at Chelsea, Paul Clement, whose Swansea side are fighting against relegation.
The former England captain revealed he held talks with Clement over the summer and was tempted by a move to the Swans, despite his insistence he could never play for one of Chelsea’s Premier League rivals.
(Clement is a) great man manager, someone I spoke to personally over the summer, just a great manger and a really good guy as well,” said Terry.
He needs a bit of time, he needs the transfer window to get a few more players in, the right man for the job for sure.
