Despite his poor form, John Terry got a full vote of confidence from his manager.
Roberto Di Matteo stood behind his captain, saying that Terry "has been a leader and everything you want in a captain." Terry has been battling injuries all year, but he has still played more than 40 matches. At 31 years old, that's an incredible feat.
Moving on from Terry, it is important to note how intelligent Di Matteo was to support his captain. Terry has come under a lot of scrutiny over the past few years (from myself included), but Chelsea have stood behind him.
With Di Matteo standing behind the Chelsea skipper, he asserts himself as a spokesman for the club, which is exactly what a good manager would do.
Chelsea haven't made a decision on Di Matteo's future yet, but he has done a pretty good job forcing the board to consider him.
