John Terry makes retirement announcement ahead of Chelsea’s final EPL game
Chelsea have enjoyed success in both in Europe and the Premier League, this they have achieved at the dedication and loyalty of some players. Players like Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech and John Terry formed a generation of Champions for the Blues.
The latter(John Terry) has outlasted his Chelsea generation and he could be set for a glorious exit from Stamford Bridge after an enviable career with Chelsea. Terry, has laced his boots for Chelsea alone in the entire duration of barnstorming career.
After Thumping Watford yesterday, Terry admitted that he may retire at the end of this season, reports BBC. The Blues will play Sunderland this Sunday in Chelsea’s final Premier League of the season and the could just be his last game for Chelsea.
Speaking after the win against Watford, Terry said:
“I’ve not ruled out Sunday being my last game and retiring from football,” he told Sky Sports.
“If the right offer comes along I will sit down and consider it with my family – whether that’s here or abroad.
“Genuinely I haven’t made any decisions yet and I’m evaluating all my options at the moment.”
Terry has built a legendary status at Chelsea and he deserved to be immortalized at the Club. His twilight years of football are already behind but he could yet get offers from Chinese Clubs or even the MLS. At 36, he will not be able to play any part for Chelsea next season, and so he should favor a move.
Having won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups, a Champions League and the Europa League Cup among other trophies, Terry is the most decorated Chelsea player in history. He has featured for the Blues in 716 games. What a legend.
