Having to play through the pain wasn’t a problem for outgoing Chelsea captain who opened up on his experience.
John Terry has revealed he received daily injections daily for a whole year under Mourinho.
The 36-year-old who would be leaving Chelsea officially on June 30 has opened up about the sacrifices he had to make.
“I remember in Jose Mourinho’s years he was desperate for me to play or train when I had a broken toe and a broken bone in my foot,” He told the Chelsea’s official website.
“I had to have two injections in my toe every day for a whole year, one before training and sometimes the doctor would have to come out and re-inject me because it wore off in training if it was a longer session than an hour.
“It was just a given for me. I played through the pain barrier numerous times. In the 2015 Premier League-winning season when I played every minute of every game, you just find a way.
“I would do it again tomorrow because it sounds crazy but you would give your life for the football club when they have given you so much over the years.”
