“Probably a boy called Rob Wolleaston at Chelsea. I still know Rob now, but mentally didn’t have that to go and push himself.“
“Gullit told him he was going to play in the first team in a cup game for Chelsea. He then phoned up on the day of the game and said he was sick.”Terry on Wolleaston
“All of us, if we were sick or felt like we were at the end of the world, we would have still gone and played the game. We wouldn’t have given up that opportunity. He actually done it two or three times and he was just not mentally ready for the game at Chelsea but ability-wise, incredible.”
