‘Making people dizzy’ – John Terry revels in throwback Joe Cole goal for Chelsea in which Rio Ferdinand is left for dust

JOHN TERRY revelled in Joe Cole’s iconic 2006 goal for Chelsea against Manchester United where he made Rio Ferdinand “dizzy”.

Chelsea confirmed back-to-back Premier League titles with a 3-0 win over United.

William Gallas and Ricardo Carvalho got on the scoresheet, but Cole’s goal was the pick of the bunch.

The ex-England international controlled Didier Drogba’s flick-on and twisted away from Ferdinand with a drag-back before firing high into the net.

Cole’s goal made Ferdinand and Co “dizzy”, said former team-mate and Chelsea captain Terry.

The iconic Blues defender said on Twitter: “Joe Cole what a goal, what a day, Making people dizzy.”

Drogba responded: “Can you mention my assist please???? Thank you.”

Fans loved rewatching the goal just as much as Terry.

One said on Twitter: “Look how Ferdinand is chasing shadows…”

Another tweeted: “Joe Cole did Ferdinand dirty there.”

Chelsea take on Man Utd at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and Blues fans will be hoping for more of the same.

Graham Potter’s side won’t have to worry about dealing with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old, who played in the 2006 game, has been banished from the matchday squad after defying manager Erik ten Hag’s orders.

Ronaldo refused to come on as a late substitute in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over top-four rivals Tottenham.

A win for Chelsea would lift them level on points with Tottenham, while three points for United would leapfrog Saturday’s opponents.
