Video: Robbie Savage Responds To John Terry Criticism On BT Sport

Not sure if you've heard this one before but, 'football, it's a game of opinions'. That was the line from Robbie Savage on BT Sports' 'Fletch and Sav' on Saturday morning. He believes everyone - be they Sunday League player, milkman or someone with 346 Premier League appearances - is allowed to have one about the sport.


During the week, in a press conference ahead of Chelsea's Champions League tie with Dynamo Kiev, John Terry expressed a slightly different viewpoint.

Terry said that when criticism comes from former players such as Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville or Rio Ferdinand - he can take it on the chin. However, when it's originating from someone like Savage - 'Who hasn't had a career' according to the Chelsea centre-back, he can't accept it.

A reflective Savage said what hurt him most about that press conference was not the words of Terry, but the 'sycophantic' laughs of journalists present. He also made the case for himself, contrary to Terry's claims, actually having a noteworthy football career.
