John Terry admits he ‘didn’t get on’ with Rafa Benitez at Chelsea

John Terry admits he clashed with Rafa Benitez during his spell at Chelsea due to his continued Liverpool references.

The Spaniard took over midway through the 2012/13 season and was greeted with a hostile reception.

During his time in charge of the Reds, where he won the Champions League and FA Cup, he was particularly critical of the Blues.

He went on to win the Europa League at Stamford Bridge but Terry was not always involved and took issue with some of his management techniques.

“From a tactical point of view I was looking forward to working with him,” Terry recalled on Sky Sports.

“You could say he was quite successful, we won the Europa League under him, of course, but for me personally you want to develop and learn.

“I’d seen tactically how he’d set up against us previously and stuff. Like everything, you give everyone a fair chance and it’s down to them to prove to you otherwise.

“We just didn’t get on from day one personally, to be honest. Every meeting we had it was, ‘Oh we used to do this at Liverpool and we did this’.
