John Terry finally retired from competitive football this week as he thanked his family, coaches, teammates, and fans for their support over the last two decades. He was truly one of us…we shall miss him on the field, our captain fantastic.

John Terry will be remembered for his bravery on and off the field. As a captain, a fearless defender alongside so many greats at Chelsea, he was perhaps the greatest of them all. His awareness of danger in his own penalty box was unparalleled where he put his body (and head) on the line. Who can forget the cup final against Arsenal when he was knocked out cold for a few minutes, yet he first made sure the ball never went in his goal. And his love for scoring goals in the opposite end. He had a knack for scoring goals from set pieces. He was a fierce competitor, a leader, a giant and someone the team could depend on.  From winning 15 titles in 22 years to slipping and failing to score in a penalty shoot-out in the 2008 Champions League final against Man Utd in Moscow to lifting the same trophy alongside Frankie Lampard four years later against Bayern Munich in 2012.

He led our beloved Chelsea to five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, and both the Champions League and Europa League. During this time he played 78 times for England and 34 of those as the captain during a nine-year spell. He has played for Aston Villa in the English Championship during the 2017/2018 season and is now also their newly appointed assistant Manager.
