JT outrage: Chelsea skipper slams vile chants but claims: I riled Hammers fans

27 April 2009 11:37
John Terry last night condemned West Ham's supporters for the disgraceful taunts aimed at him and team-mate Frank Lampard during Chelsea's 1-0 victory at Upton Park.

West Ham fans sang 'you let your children down' to former Hammer Lampard throughout the game, a reference to his infamous call to a London radio station last Friday in which he sought to defend himself on air against accusations of being a bad father.

Terry revealed that his mother, along with several members of his family, did not attend the game after West Ham websites encouraged supporters to sing 'John Terry's mum is a thief' following her recent brush with the law.

The Chelsea captain, who was disgusted by the abuse, said: 'When wescored I went running to Frank and gave them a bit back, but there'snothing wrong with that. The referee had a quiet word and told me notto wind them up but if I can take it, they have to get a little bitback as well. They have to respect it, but when we gave them some backthey all got the a***.'

West Ham fans have developed a reputation for being among the mostspiteful in the country and abuse former players when they return toUpton Park.
