The former Chelsea and England defender John Terry has decided to hang his boots from Football.
John Terry who has spent his career at Chelsea and left to join championship Aston villa in 2017 and led the midlands side to a play off final this year and has been without a club since as his one year contract has run out.
Terry has won 17 medals all together from his achievements in the champions League, Premier league, Fa cup, Europa league and league cup with Chelsea getting over 700 appearances for Chelsea.
Terry had turned down a move to Spartak Moscow in september as he said it wasnt right for his family.
In an instagram post John Terry wrote in a statement thanking his family
“As a 14-year-old, I made my best and biggest decision: to sign for Chelsea Football Club. Words will never be enough to show how much everyone at the club means to me, in particular the fans.
“Right from the outset they have given me total support, on and off the pitch, and I have a tremendous bond with them.
“We achieved so many great memories together and I couldn’t have succeeded without you. To me, you are the best fans in the world. I hope I have done you all proud wearing the shirt and the armband.
“My club career and heart will always belong to Chelsea, but I am grateful for my loan spell at Nottingham Forest in 1999, which was invaluable for my development as a young player.
“And I also want to say a huge thank you to Aston Villa for giving me the opportunity to play at such a big club and captain it throughout the 2017-18 season.
“It was a privilege to represent such a renowned football club with great fans.
“I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges ahead.”
John Terry has been an influential part of Chelsea and for managers who have come and gone as of captaining the team a handful amount of times and even for England and also leading Aston villa to the play off final.
Considering the defenders achievements i feel considering going through the same footsteps as Frank Lampard who is now managing Derby county John Terry can take his leaderships skills and apply them into a having a managerial career.
Jose Mourinho, Ancelloti, Benitez who are among the best in the world have managed Terry and the experience and knowledge the english man has he is able to bring that to the table and create more sucess for himself.
