AVB – Terry card not planned

John Terry’s yellow card on Saturday means that he will miss the cup match against Liverpool but Blues boss insists the caution was not deliberate.

Andre Villas-Boas has come out and denied that captain John Terry deliberately got a yellow card so he could miss the Carling Cup match against Liverpool rather than a crucial league game.

He was booked for time wasting during the 3-0 victory, after a delay surrounding a throw-in.

AVB told The Sun: “Terry got a yellow card from a throw-in. Ashley Cole was looking for the best options and couldn’t find any so Terry’s out on Tuesday.

“It wasn’t a deliberate yellow card as they’re not allowed by UEFA.
