Chelsea captain John Terry believes his team can emulate Manchester United’s 1999 achievement and win the treble this season.
Speaking after Chelsea’s 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow ensured the Premeir League club reached the knockout stages of the Champions League, Terry’s remarks were at odds with those of his copach Jose Mourinho, who yesterday dimissed talk of a domestic and European double.
“I understand what the manager is saying but the belief running through the squad is that we can go all the way in every competition we are in,” Terry was quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.
“Manchester United did the treble a few years ago and it would be a fantastic achievement to emulate them,” he said.
“We have got 16 top players in every squad and sometimes eight internationals travelling to games as spectators,” the England defender said.
Chelsea are second in the Premier League with 26 points, trailing leaders Arsenal on goal difference.
