Terry to miss cup game with injury

first_imgLONDON (AP):John Terry has been ruled out of Chelsea’s FA Cup match against Manchester City tomorrow.Terry, who also missed the midweek Champions league, loss against Paris Saint-Germain, is absent due to a hamstring injury.Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, described his captain’s absence for the fifth-round meeting with City as disappointing, calling Terry “the leader of this club”.Hiddink suggested the central defender should be fit for next week’s Premier League game at Southampton.”We have a week I hope. Next weekend he should be available. I cannot predict it and I think we have to be a bit cautious with him as well because he likes to be there every day,” Hiddink said. “We must be careful. I think maybe next weekend but you know him, he loves to be there. He tried yesterday but no.”The 35-year-old Terry is entering the final months of his Chelsea career after disclosing that the club has not offered him a new contract for next season.On his Instagram page, captioning a photo of the Chelsea captain during his injury rehab, Terry wrote “Absolutely gutted to be missing the FA Cup game this weekend.
