Chelsea skipper John Terry hopes to return to action in just over a month’s time after having an operation to clear up a knee problem.
Terry is eager to get back in the thick of things to try and help the Blues ensure Champions League football next season, with Chelsea 10/11 with bookmaker to finish in the top four.
Terry told The Sun: “We’re all confident the operation has solved the problem and it is looking good for a quick return. The medical staff say four to six weeks before I can play again, but, hopefully, it might be sooner.
“I’ll definitely be back before the end of the season to help the team in the Premier League run-in and for the Euros.”
Terry has not featured for Chelsea since the end of January, with the Blues having won just once in their last four Premier League games in their captain’s absence.
