Rafa Hails Terry's Leadership

Chelsea interim boss Rafa Benitez believes John Terry could possess the leadership qualities necessary for top-flight management.

The Blues captain, who has recovered from a knee injury, is likely to make his first start since November in Sunday's FA Cup fourth round clash with Brentford.
 
And Benitez is pleased to have the 32-year-old back at his disposal, with the Spaniard revealing they share similar thoughts on football.
 
"He is a key player for us and for the rest of the season," Benitez said.
 
"We agree on a lot of things in football.
 
"We don't talk too much about tactics. But I have had players in the past who have been big names, who have not understood the game like him. He seems as though he understands.
 
"The way he treats the young players and takes care of them, it is quite possible he has the qualities to become a manager."
 
Regarding the upcoming game, Benitez added: "We will try to win and avoid this situation but we know the cup is always dangerous and that anything can happen."
