John Terry has been a loyal servant to Chelsea Football club. He joined the club when he was 14 years old and now 22 years later, he announced that it's time to part ways. John Terry has won every possible trophy a player can win and was also included in FIFA's team of the year several times. He was constantly regarded as one of the top two defenders of the last decade alongside Nemanja Vidic'. Now that Terry has decided to leave Chelsea Fc, he would love wearing that captain's armband for one last time and lift the Premier League and FA Cup trophies. However, alongside club's official statement, Terry also mentioned what Chelsea and Chelsea fans meant to him.
He has made 713 appearances, won 5 FA Cups, 4 Premier Leagues, 3 League Cups, 1 Champions League, 1 Europa League. Indeed a Stellar Career.
Terry can add Premier League and FA cup to his already huge collection as Chelsea are in a good position to win both.
In the statement, Terry wrote: "After 22 years there is so much to say and so many people to thank at this great football club. From coaches, team-mates and staff to the fans who have given me so much support down the years, I can't thank you enough. There will be opportunities for me to speak further about this over the coming weeks.''
"I will decide on my future in due course, but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season. The club and I have always had a fantastic relationship, which will continue beyond my playing days. We had some really positive talks but with everything taken into careful consideration I have decided it's the right time for me to leave."
"Finally, words cannot describe the love I have for our football club and our amazing Chelsea fans. I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for the unbelievable support you've shown me over the years. You mean the world to me and every trophy we've won during my time at the club we've won together. I will never forget the incredible journey we've been on. Thank you so much for everything."
Thank you John Terry
