Out with the new, in with the old? Is Allardyce really set to bring Terry back?

August 23 – England’s new manager Sam Allardyce is considering holding talks with former captain John Terry on a possible return to international football.

Terry won the last of his 78 England caps in September 2012 and then quit the national team  after the Football Association pursued a case against him following accusations of racial abuse.

The Chelsea defender was subsequently banned for four matches despite being cleared of the allegation in a London court.

Allardyce has not ruled out trying to persuade Terry back into the international but recognises the sensitivity of the issue.

“Maybe if I get the opportunity, I might have to give him a ring,” he told British media. “But until I come to that selection or that process, we’ll wait and see.

“I don’t know what the political side of that might mean, if there is a political side. I’ll have to have that conversation if I feel that John Terry may be a possibility.”
