John Terry will stay on as Chelsea captain, but has been told by new boss Andre Villas-Boas he is not guaranteed a place in the team.

Villas-Boas said Terry would wear the captain’s armband as long as he was still performing at his best, but left supporters in no doubt that a spot in his side would be earned on form, not reputation.

“If John is in the team, he will be the captain,” the Portuguese manager said.

“John is the captain of this club and will continue to be, as long as he can perform to the utmost of his ability as he has in the last six years.”

“He has been successful in his captaincy for most of the time.”

“And he represents the successful history of this club in the last six or seven years.”

“I know most of the players in the dressing room see John as a leader and a player who motivates them.”

Villas-Boas said the club was not short on leaders both on and off the pitch.

“If we find other leaders, more social role models, for sure they will have the captaincy as well,” he said.

“Like Lamps (Frank Lampard) and Didier (Drogba) who have taken the captaincy in different games.”

“Because in the end, it’s not a question of saying John is the only leader. There are lots of leaders in the dressing room.”
