Terry hits back at fan abuse

27 Apr 2009 - 08:42:15

Chelsea skipper John Terry has accused some West Ham United fans of overstepping the mark with abuse aimed at both him and team-mate Frank Lampard.

Terry was upset with the behaviour of some home supporters during his side's 1-0 victory at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Blues and England skipper and former Hammer Lampard were taunted by chants concerning their families.

"When we scored, I went running over to Lamps and gave them a bit back - there's nothing wrong with that," said Terry.

"The referee had a quiet word with me and said: 'Don't wind them up'. But if they can give they can take it and if I can take it I can give it. That's the way it's got to be.

"They have to expect a bit back. When they do get a bit back they all get the hump a little bit.

"But that is football. I'll take it the rest of my career and I'll certainly give a bit back in my career.

"When you get that stick you just want to prove them wrong and shut them up. I think we did that."
