John Terry: Chelsea captain 'could not care less' over substitution controversy

Asked if he would be ready if selected by manager Arsene Wenger, Mertesacker responded: "I can not tell you".

Paddy Power had accepted the bets on Terry being replaced between 26:00 and 26:59, matching his shirt number, in Sunday's final Premier League fixture of the campaign, the 36-year-old's last as a Chelsea player at Stamford Bridge.

Alan Shearer said on Match Of The Day: "Terry has been an absolute giant of the Premier League, 717 appearances, 15 trophies".

Chelsea skipper John Terry, who will leave the club at the end of the season after 22 years, said that anything other than a win would tarnish their achievements.

Paddy Power said it had "replied to a novelty request for odds on John Terry's substitution", from the three customers. Chelsea will also "make a donation to a fund supporting the victims of this horrific attack". Me and them have a wonderful rapport and have done for 22 years.

"I wanted to play 26 minutes and come off because of the shirt number".

I was out for half a year and it was hard at times, I tried to support the team as much as I could. "They know what it means to me and they have given me an unbelievable send off and one I'll never forget".
