Chelsea in no hurry over trio

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists the club are in no rush to decide on the futures of captain John Terry, midfielder Frank Lampard and left-back Ashley Cole.

The trio will all be out of contract at the end of the season after distinguished careers with the Blues and they could in theory have made their final appearances at Stamford Bridge in the goalless draw with Norwich.

The players undertook a lap of appreciation after Sunday's game, with tears flowing in what could be Terry, Lampard and Cole's farewell.

"They are with the club on their future," said Mourinho, who says he wants all three to stay.

"Now it's time to wait a little bit. The summer is a long summer for us.

"For the players involved in the World Cup it's a different story, but for us, as a club, it's a long time to be calm and to sit and to discuss and to analyse options and the market and possibilities."
