Love rivals Terry, Bridge on course to meet three times in a week

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb 15 (ANI): Love rivals, Chelsea skipper John Terry and his England teammate Wayne Bridge are now on course to meet three times in a week.

Terry and Bridge have not spoken since news broke of JT's affair with Bridge's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.

They are likely to meet in a possible Football Association Cup quarter-final meeting in yesterday's draw.

And that potential clash between Chelsea and Manchester City will be played a week after the clubs meet in the Premier League and days after England play Egypt on March 3.

"Wayne has acted with dignity and kept his head down through all this but after all that has gone on, he doesn't need anyone to tell him what this FA Cup game would mean," The Sun quoted a City source, as saying.

"Everyone is motivated at City these days but if they needed any extra motivation to beat Stoke to get back to Stamford Bridge, this will be it," the source said.

If City beat Stoke in next week's fifth-round replay they will travel to holders Chelsea in the first weekend of March.

The paper reports that Three Lions boss Fabio Capello will pick Bridge for the friendly against Egypt after his personal check on Saturday.

And Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is convinced Bridge will accept the invitation to team up with Terry.

Capello believes Bridge is ready for an international recall after watching him during City's 1-1 FA Cup draw with Stoke. (ANI)
