Cesar Azpilicueta has admitted that he found John Terry "scary" when he first arrived at Chelsea from Marseille in the summer.
However, since then, the Spanish full-back has revealed that his captain has played a major role in helping him to settle in at Stamford Bridge.
"Terry is a bit scary at first," he told El Pais. "His temper on the field can be frightening, but he is a very good guy.
"He helps the new players a lot and on the field he gives me advice, corrects me. He is a leader. I respect him a lot. With David Luiz there are more jokes, he is more fun."
Azpilicueta has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the Blues this season.
