John Terry is clearly keen to get some more regular playing time for Chelsea this season

A post shared by John Terry (@johnterry.26) on

John Terry has taken to social media to suggest that he is desperate to get some more playing time with Chelsea this season.

The Blues captain has been handed a watching brief for much of the season after falling behind the likes of David Luiz in the pecking order in Chelsea’s defence.

However, Terry has been working hard to keep himself available when called upon, and the veteran defender was handed a rare start for Chelsea’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Wolves on Saturday as he helped the Blues keep a clean sheet and set up a quarter-final clash against Manchester United.

And the former England star used his personal Instagram account to admit that he wants more playing time this term.
