John Terry Defends Frank Lampard’s Backroom Staff Amidst Criticism From ‘Lazy’ Fan: The Truth Behind the Nonsense
John Terry responds to a ‘NONSENSE’ from a ‘lazy’ fan who demanded that he be kept away from Frank Lampard’s Chelsea backroom staff because he plays ‘too much golf’ – but admits that ‘Frank has his team’.
John Terry has clashed with a Chelsea fan online after being told that he should not be part of Frank Lampard’s coaching team.
Lampard was named interim manager of Chelsea on Thursday, after the club announced he would be in charge until the end of the season.
Chelsea’s all-time leading scorer will be in charge for the remainder of the Premier League season as well as a crucial quarter-final Champions League clash with tournament holders Real Madrid.
Also unbelievable news for everyone at Chelsea to have lamps back.
I know how this works , Frank has his team and if I went into a job I would have mine.
I won’t have people talk nonsense.
Lamps is the best player in our history and this is just what we needed.

Terry, on the other hand, will not be returning to the club as part of the backroom staff after revealing in an online post that Lampard already “has his team.”
The legendary centre-back is currently a coaching consultant at Chelsea after retiring from active football after previously working as an assistant at Aston Villa, but he has stated that a return to Stamford Bridge is the only role he would consider.
However, Terry, 42, appears to have been irritated by a Twitter user who advised Lampard not to consider his former teammate because he plays “too much golf.”
‘Delighted Lamps is back and excited by the back room appointments,’ read the rant. Please do not include JT (John Terry) on that list.’ Club legend, but far too much golf and insufficient coaching experience to merit inclusion. ‘The days of barrack-room bombast are over.’
Terry retorted with two frustrated messages, first slamming the anonymous user and then attempting to justify his coaching abilities after winning ‘promotion to the Premier League’ and working under’some of the best managers in the game’.
Terry’s initial response was, ‘Lazy comment. I have all of the coaching badges required to coach at the HIGHEST LEVEL in the game.
‘Spent three years at Villa and WON PROMOTION to the Premier League, year after year,’ he added.
‘Oh, and I played at the highest level for 17 years under some of the best managers in the game.’
During his 19-year playing career at Chelsea, Terry worked under Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez, and Antonio Conte, and he feels he learned a few things from the highly regarded coaches.
