FA play down Terry return

Chelsea defender John Terry will not be considered for the England national team until he comes out of his self-imposed international exile.

• Terry snub Bernstein

That is the word coming from Football Association chairman David Bernstein who believes that, until Terry says otherwise, the 32-year-old "stays retired".

Terry quit the Three Lions after he was stripped of the captaincy and given a four-game ban for racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand.

However, it has been reported in recent weeks that Terry was considering an international comeback just in time for the next World Cup in Brazil.

But Bernstein has poured cold water on the story, telling The Sun that Terry will not make a return to the England fold until he officially declares his international return.

"He has not announced he's coming out of retirement — and if he did the initial decision would be down to the manager," Bernstein said. "John Terry has always taken his football very seriously.

"Therefore, I take his retirement seriously. Until I hear to the contrary, he stays retired."
