London, Apr 19 (ANI): Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has said that skipper John Terry lost control when he was sent off against the Spurs after receiving two yellow cards in the 2-1 defeat in which he also conceded a penalty for the first goal. Terry was the subject of abuse from Spurs fans throughout the game and Ancelotti conceded his captain did not play well.
The Blues boss backed Terry to come back from the disappointment, and insisted he has had an outstanding season, The Sun reports.
"I was a player and you know sometimes you are not always rational, you sometimes lose your control. He has had a fantastic season. Maybe sometimes he had some problems and didn't play so well, maybe against Spurs he didn't play too well," Ancelotti said.
The destiny of the title is still in Chelsea's hands and Ancelotti admitted Spurs were the better team at the weekend, but is still confident of his team's chances.
"Now we have to win the next game and if possible the next three games - then we are the champions. Tottenham played better than us, it can happen, but it's a time to stay calm," he said. (ANI)
