John Terry and Chelsea Players Observe Two-Minute Armistice Day Silence In Training

John Terry and Chelsea Players Observe Two-Minute Armistice Day Silence In Training

Chelsea skipper John Terry and his teammates downed tools this morning in training as they stood and took part in the Remembrance Day two-minute silence.

The pressure is firmly on the Chelsea players to start performing after a dismal start to the season, having won just three times in 12 matches.

However, while the team will be giving their utmost in training to prove they have the stomach to turn it around, the players put their struggles into perspective this morning as they remembered the nation’s war dead.

Terry took to Instagram to share the moment where the players stopped training and stood in silence on the the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Today, 97 years ago, the guns fell silent along the Western Front in Europe during World War One.




After the international break this weekend, Chelsea get back to Premier League competition as they host Norwich on November 27.

And Blues boss Jose Mourinho will feel comfortable in the knowledge that Champions League matches and a trip to Old Trafford aside, the festive fixture list has been very kind to Chelsea this year.
