Falcao Still Not Ready For Chelsea Return But Terry And Ramires 'Fine'

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that striker Radamel Falcao is still a couple of weeks away from a return despite being back in training but that "John Terry and Ramires look fine."

Mourinho, whose side face a crucial Champions League clash against his old club Porto at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, gave the update at a prematch news conference.

"Falcao is not fit, he just had a little period with us," he said. "It was his first time training with us. He's still a couple of weeks away from being ready. John and Ramires look fine."

Chelsea captain Terry, who turned 35 on Monday, has missed the club's last two matches -- Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth and the previous Sunday's goalless draw at Tottenham. His last match was in the Blues' most recent European fixture, a 4-0 win at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Ramires, who recently signed a new contract with the club, has missed the last three games after suffering a muscle injury in training before the Group G match in Israel.

Falcao has not featured for Chelsea since the end of October after sustaining a muscular injury in November.

Earlier this month, sources told ESPN FC that Chelsea were struggling to offload Falcao and end his season-long loan spell at Stamford Bridge from Monaco early.

The sources said Mourinho was looking into cancelling Falcao's loan spell in January to enable him to free up space in the squad for a new striker.
