John Terry names the 'incredible' wasted talent he saw at Chelsea

John Terry played alongside some incredible players at Chelsea but believes Rob Wollaston was the greatest talent he saw that never fulfilled his potential. Wollaston had the chance to step up to the first-team under Ruud Gullit in the late 90’s, but his rising star quickly faded. Terry was asked which player had the most talent at Chelsea that never made it and he replied: ‘Probably a boy called Rob Woollaston at Chelsea. "He was like a midfielder/winger, had so much ability. I still know Rob now, but mentally didn’t have that to go and push himself. He got chose to train with the first team at a really young age, 17 or 18, did really well and Gullit told him he was going to play in the first team in a cup game. "He then phoned up on the day of the game and said he was sick. ‘All of us, if we were sick or felt like we were at the end of the world, we would have still gone and played the game, we wouldn’t have given up that opportunity. "He actually done it two or three times and he was just not mentally ready for the game, but ability-wise, incredible." Source: Metro
