John Terry will at least be in the British papers for the right reasons after scoring the winning goal in Chelsea’s 2-1 Premier League victory at Burnley.
The England captain started the match and made sure his team will stay top of the league despite intense media attention on him following allegations about the England captain’s private life.
A High Court judge lifted a court order Friday that had prevented the media from reporting allegations about the married defender’s ties to another woman.
British media had reported that Terry may sit out the match at Turf Moor and speculated over his future as England captain.
The Football Association has not commented upon the matter.
“He is a fantastic player,” Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti said. “That is his private life. He is about work. We don’t have to say nothing because he is very professional.”
