Terry calls on players to 'man up' for Chelsea

JOHN TERRY wants the Chelsea players to save Carlo Ancelotti's job by delivering a win in the Champions League in Denmark.

The Italian coach is under intense pressure as Chelsea take on FC Copenhagen tonight following the weekend FA Cup loss to struggling Everton.

It's now thought that Ancelotti will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season -- an exit which will be hastened if the Blues flop against Copenhagen.

But captain Terry wants stability and says that the squad have to deliver for Ancelotti.

"The players are 100% behind the manager," Terry stressed.

"He's got total confidence in us, and that will remain the same. We believe in the manager and the players.

"It's been difficult, because at times we have shown our quality. But we are where we are - we have to deal with that.

"We have to man up a little bit as a group of players and take responsibility.

"It would be disastrous for the football club if we don't qualify for the Champions League. It's even hard to get my head around it now."
