Valencia Captain Tells Club To Stay Away From John Terry

Valencia captain David Albelda has hit out at rumours suggesting that the La Liga club are considering bringing Chelsea skipper John Terry to the Mestalla.


Speaking to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the Spaniard expressed his unhappiness with reports suggesting that Valencia are considering offering Terry a way out of England following the racism scandal that has engulfed the Chelsea man’s professional and personal life for nearly the past year.


But it would appear Albelda’s concerns do not relate to the retired England internationals racism trial and subsequent charge of inappropriate language by the Football Associaition. The 35-year-old who has spent his entire career – bar two loan spells away – at Valencia is more worried by what lucrative pay package the club would offer Terry.


Albeda explained to Mundo Deportivo that the reported wages of €6 million that would have to be afforded to the defender would cause serious imbalance amongst the squad. The midfielder added that that the sum Terry would be expected to pick up if the move ever came around would work out to be the equivalent of the annual salary of four current Valencia players.
