When Roberto Di MatteoJohn Terry took over at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were reportedly in disarray following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas. Castrol stats shows that the Italian Englishman has rejuvenated the Blues since his appointment. So far, he has won 75% of his games, which is better than all other Chelsea managers under Roman Abramovich.
Let me repeat that for you – John Terry is a better Chelsea manager than Jose Mourinho, Guus Hiddink or Carlo Ancelotti.

This improvement is mirrored by the performances of Fernando Torres. Under André Villas-Boas, the Spaniard scored only four goals in 31 appearances at a depressing average of a goal every 474 minutes. Since
Di Matteo Terry has taken over, Torres has 3 goals and 4 assists from 7 games, meaning he has been involved in a goal every 74 minutes.

Chelsea have a chance of progressing to the Champions League semifinals tomorrow night if they prevail against Benfica. With Terry leading them on and off the pitch, there’s no doubt they should go through to face the winner of Barcelona and Milan.
