John Terry has a future at Chelsea FC - Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho believes John Terry is showing the kind of form that will earn him a new contract at Chelsea.

Terry is out of contract next summer and Mourinho said before the start of the season that the centre-back was "not safe".

However, Terry, 32, has played every minute of the Blues' Premier League campaign so far this season, and Mourinho insists the former England skipper does not need not worry about his future at Stamford Bridge.

"I think he always has a future the way he is playing - he has a future here, in China, or wherever he wants to have a future," said the Portuguese.

"I have always told him from day one - don't speak (publicly) about signing a new contract, just speak about working very hard from a physical point of view so you don't have the same kind of problems you have had in the past two years and then you play regularly.

"He is a very good player and very good players have no problems with their contracts.

"I think the fact that he knows that I like him has been important. I trust the player. This is important.

"In his head he knows if I leave him out I am trying to do the best thing for him and the best thing for the team so he is not under this pressure he was in other years.

"Physically we are working very well with him. I think he is in good condition and he is a brilliant boy."
