John Terry's new Chelsea clause is a bit embarrassing

John Terry's new Chelsea clause is a bit embarrassing

Terry famously dropped down a division in joining Villa so as to avoid facing Chelsea in the Premier League and a report in The Telegraph suggests that his manager, Steve Bruce, is willing to allow him to sit out games against his former club.

The Villans face Fulham in the Championship playoff final on Saturday, and according to The Telegraph, the former England global will consider extending his stay with them if they defeat the Whites and book a return to the top flight.

Aston Villa defender Ahmed Elmohamady is recovering from a hamstring injury and could replace James Bree at right-back if the Egyptian is fully fit. In a quiet way, he is not a ranter and a raver, he is not one who puts heads through doors.

"Well, we'll not pick him against Chelsea if that's what he wants", the 57-year-old told reporters.

"I tried to adapt us to use him the best way, but two months ago I explained to him that now this position is covered and we are going to start with Aleksandar Mitrovic, and he needed to open his mind and think about different positions". When we played them earlier in the season [and lost], we weren't at full strength, and when we played them towards the back end of the season [and won], they weren't at full strength.

"But I assessed it and thought: 'If there's one team that could kick on, it will probably be them.' And I knew most of the staff here which was a big factor". We are going to try to put against Terry some fast and some stronger players.

We are the youngest team, the team with more energy.

"It's a massive challenge ahead of us and we believe in our style", Jokanovic added.

Fulham finished five points above fourth-placed Villa and went unbeaten for 23 games in their push for automatic promotion. I am not thinking about the future.
