England fans have taken to social media in their droves after it was revealed that Sam Allardyce is considering making an approach to Chelsea captain John Terry regarding a possible recall to the national side.

The 35-year-old retired in September 2012 after the Football Association pursued a disciplinary case against him as captain despite being cleared of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League game between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers 11 months earlier.

There have of course been plenty of calls for the defender to return, with rumours hitting fever-pitch last year that the defender was being considered for Euro 2016, with former England boss Roy Hodgson admitting that the prospect of bringing Terry back into the fold was an intriguing option.

Whilst Hodgson opted not to pursue such an option, it’s believed that Sam Allardyce is certainly considering approaching the Chelsea centre-half.

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

Pushed on whether Terry may indeed be a possibility, he continued: “Maybe so. I think it depends on what John said. Maybe if I get the opportunity, I might have to give him a ring. But until I come to that selection or that process, we’ll wait and see.”

The England boss will name his squad on Sunday for next month’s opening 2018 World Cup qualifier against Slovakia, and judging by the reaction on Twitter, England fans remain divided on a possible John Terry recall.
