Benitez and Terry deny row reports

Rafael Benitez

CHELSEA interim boss Rafael Benitez and John Terry are adamant they are not in dispute after the captain made a goalscoring return to the starting XI.

Following a knee injury sustained in November before Benitez's arrival, Terry made just his third start under the Spaniard in yesterday's 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

Benitez and Terry felt the need to rebuff a report of a disagreement between the pair.

"He's quite positive," Benitez said. "He knows that the main thing is the team winning and if he can play, much better."

Terry told ITV: "It's good to have competition.

"The manager knows me and I want to play. I have been out for two or three months, but the other two (centre-backs) have been doing well."
