Villas-Boas: Terry a loss for England

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas believes John Terry's retirement from international football is a 'massive loss' for England which has left national team boss Roy Hodgson in a weakened position as he plots at path to the 2014 World Cup finals.

• Terry guilty of racism

Villas-Boas was Terry's manager on the day of his infamous clash with QPR's Anton Ferdinand last October and the coach, now in charge at Spurs, was giving his Thursday press briefing just as news of his former captain's four-match ban for racism was being announced.

While Villas-Boas would not be drawn on the implications of Terry's suspension while the television cameras were turned on, he was fulsome in his praise of Terry's qualities as a player and suggested he would be missed as England look to the future.

"JT's retirement is a massive, massive loss for England," stated Villas-Boas. "Terry is a player of unbelievable talent and he has done so much for his country and for Chelsea too. In the end, the decision he has made is personal, but from the perspective of the England squad and qualification for the World Cup, it leaves Hodgson in a difficult position looking towards qualification.

"I am not questioning the quality of the players he has at his disposal, but he has lost a player of great, great talent."
