Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed his club will be appealing his red card against Peterborough United in their FA Cup third-round clash on Sunday.
Terry, who played his first game under Conte since November following an injury lay-off, was shown a straight red card after a collision with Lee Angol.
The Blues’ Manager Antonio Conte had also earlier suggested in a post-match interview that the club would be submitting an appeal to the Football Association, with the hope that they’d realize the 36-years-old didn’t deserve what he got.
While confirming this via his Instagram handle on Sunday night, Terry also insisted it was a ‘great feeling’ to lead the side out once again.
“What a great feeling being back on the pitch today, albeit only for 67 mins after my red card which I will be appealing and hope the FA and the ref will look at it and realize I didn’t touch Lee Angol.
“Great win for the boys and into the next round of the FA Cup.
“Well done to Pedro, Michy and William. Congratulations to Kurt Zouma on your comeback mate, great to have you back.”
The Blues cruised into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 4-1 win over Peterborough, and are still five points clear off second-placed Liverpool in the Premier League.
