London: Chelsea football team manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that veteran centre-back John Terry is playing as well as when the Englishman led the club to Premier League glory almost 10 years ago.
Mourinho said that Terry is full of confidence, adding that he sees his skipper of 2004, 2005 and 2006 and there is no difference.
34-year-old Terry scored in a 2-0 win over West Ham United as Chelsea stayed clear at the top of the Premier League table, the BBC reported.
Terry had been Chelsea's captain during Mourinho's first spell as manager, helping the club to the Premier League title in 2005 with the fewest goals conceded in the competition's history.
The centre back then led Mourinho's side to a title defence the following season and an FA Cup triumph in 2007.
Friday's strike was the skipper's second goal in as many games. Along with Diego Costa's strike, it helped Chelsea maintain a three-point advantage over Manchester City, who completed a 3-1 win away to West Bromwich Albion, the report added.
