Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists he has no worries over the futures of key trio John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole .
All three are all out of contract this summer, and being in the final six months of their deals, are free to talk to other clubs about ending their long associations with the Blues.
But Mourinho is confident there will no wrangling like there was between his predecessor, Rafa Benitez, and Cole and Lampard last season.
He said: “We are calm . We know that they want to do well this season, and we know that they want to stay in the club. They know the respect we have for them.
“They know the contribution they are giving this season, which is different from last season, where many doubts were around Frank and John because they were not playing. Those doubts aren't around this season.”
Mourinho also revealed Lampard should be back from injury by the end of the month.
