But the 36-year-old admits he can't have any arguments about not getting into the team with Chelsea flying at the top of the table.
“When you’ve got a manager like Conte who’s been honest with me from day one ‘listen you’re not getting back in, the boys are playing great, the team’s flying’, you haven’t got a leg to stand on,” Terry told BT Sport.
“I genuinely mean when I say it, but for me I am honestly hoping I don’t play this season which means they keep winning. Do you get that from a player that’s been here five years? I don’t think you do. Do you get that from a player who plays but moaning every week? I’ve not moaned once.

“I’m training unbelievably, you have to, you do things the right way because the love of the club and how much you respect the club and how good the club has been to you over the years.”
