Chelsea legend Frank Lampard says John Terry is not happy to play a bit-part role under Antonio Conte.
The former England captain has been involved in only five Premier League games this season and widespread reports suggest the 36-year-old could be heading for the exit this summer.
"I say he's happy but he's obviously not happy because you know what John's like, he wants to play," Lampard was quoted saying by Express.
"I spoke to him a couple of days ago at the training ground and I actually said what a credit he is for the way he's been.
"At his age and with his stature at the club, he could either sit back and look to the future and wonder what he's going to do.
"He could kick up agenda fuss and do anything... but he's trained hard and I know that from behind the scenes.
"He's travelled up north to games when he's injured, or not in the squad, and I don't think you can forget the influence John is having.
"His experience, his know-how and drive, he will be doing that behind the scenes. He's been a real credit to himself this year."
