Chelsea legend Terry responds to comment from former Man Utd counterpart Rooney

Chelsea legend John Terry has spoken about former Manchester United attacker Wayne Rooney’s comments about him wanting to hurt someone during a clash between the two sides.

Rooney says that in the lead up to a clash between the teams in April 2006, when Chelsea were close to winning a second successive league title, he wanted to do damage to their players.

He even went as far as to change the studs on his boots pre-game.

Terry responded on Twitter saying: “@WayneRooney is this when you left your stud in my foot?”

Rooney had stated, per the Mirror: “We knew if Chelsea won then they had won the league that day,” he said. “Until my last game for Derby, I always wore the old plastic studs with the metal tip.

“For that game I changed them to big, long metal ones – the maximum length you could have because I wanted to try and hurt someone, try and injure someone.

“I knew they were going to win that game. You could feel they were a better team at the time so I changed my studs.

“The studs were legal but thinking if there’s a challenge there I knew I’d want to go in for it properly, basically. I did actually.

“John Terry left the stadium on crutches. I left a hole in his foot and then I signed my shirt to him after the game. A few weeks later I sent it to him and asked for my stud back.

“If you look back when they were celebrating, JT’s got his crutches from that tackle.”
