Claudio Ranieri has spent time this week at Cobham as a guest of Carlo Ancelotti to look around the training ground and to watch training as a whole. Ranieri took time to speak to the Official Chelsea Website and has talked about John Terry.

It was Ranieri who decided to establish Terry as a first team starter ahead of the more established international players we had and Terry has never looked back.

Speaking of JT he said:
'Of course you are proud when you see young players grow up and arrive and achieve something, and I was, believe me, desperate when John missed the last penalty in Moscow. Unbelievable, unbelievable, unlucky, unlucky, but he will win it, they will win the Champions League I am sure.

It was normal to think when I arrived that John and Frank were fantastic players, and I gambled with both of them. If you remember I said to John that in my opinion he would be the captain of the England team and look what happened.

Now John is full of experience but when he was young he was tactically, technically and it terms of personality the same as he is now. Of course he has 400 matches more but he is still young!'

Once JT hangs up his boots, he will be remembered up there alongside Dennis Wise as "Mr Chelsea" for me. For all his success, Terry came through our youth system into the first team and Ranieri has to take credit for that. Whenever you hear Terry speak of his career he is always quick to point out how much Ranieri meant to him at that time and what he did for his career.

Imagine, If he never got the chance and moved somewhere else!
