Blues may give John Terry time off
Chelsea are prepared to give John Terry time off in his fight to clear his name over allegations of racist abuse, manager Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed.
Blues and England captain Terry has continued to play for both club and country since it was first alleged he racially abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during an EPL game in October at Loftus Road.
Terry denies racially abusing Ferdinand, and should a magistrates trial take place during the season, his manager Villas-Boas will consider allowing Terry to take time off.
He said: "Eventually, if it is important for the justice, we will do it."
