John Terry may not play before Club World Cup, admits Rafael Benitez

Terry has been out of action for nearly three weeks after picking up a knee injury in his side’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Despite initial fears of a lengthy lay-off, Terry’s scan results were positive and it was estimated the defender could return to action in under a month.

But Benitez has admitted the former England captain may not play before Chelsea travel to Japan to compete in the Club World Cup, which begins on December 13.

‘It's a question of confidence. When you forget you have that problem in your knee is when you are ready,’ said the Spaniard.

‘He's pushing – "I want to be there, I want to be involved" – but still he will need some time.

‘It's a knee, not just a muscle. You have to see the reaction when you turn. You cannot put him in a position where he could get injured again.’

Terry will certainly miss tomorrow’s trip to London rivals West Ham and Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Nordsjaelland, with the 31-year-old remaining doubtful for next weekend’s match against Sunderland.
