Christensen reveals John Terry advice that has helped him recently

Chelsea’s 21-year-old centre-back Andreas Christensen has for the most part enjoyed an excellent breakthrough season at Stamford Bridge this campaign.

The young Denmark international has won many plaudits for his composed displays for Antonio Conte’s side. However, Christensen has made some high profile mistakes lately, most notably gifting a goal to Barcelona during his sides Champions League last 16 first leg tie at Stamford Bridge.

Despite coming in for some heavy criticism for his errors the talented defender has vowed to learn from his mistakes, and that advice he has received from former Chelsea captain John Terry has helped him put everything into perspective.

“My team-mates have seen all my other performances, so they know these mistakes aren’t typical for me. I had a smaller talk with John Terry – he has also experienced setbacks, and it is always nice to talk to someone watching it from the outside and to learn they have experienced the same.

“He told me it is natural to make mistakes and he tried to put it in perspective for me, saying we can’t change a goal scored against us, so when we make mistakes it is more crucial and it is easy for people to point fingers. I have realised it, looked at it and now I have moved on.” Christensen told Eurosport.
