With John Obi Mikel having left Chelsea to join Tianjin TEDA in the Chinese Super League, Chelsea captain John Terry, is the only surviving player from Chelsea’s ‘old guard’, in Jose Mourinho’s first stint at the club.

With Branislav Ivanovic having left Chelsea for Russian side Zenith St Petersburg, surely the old boys at the club have all left.

Mikel posted a picture of himself with his new teammates on his Instagram page. He captioned the photo: “Tianjin Teda family 💪 💪 💪 getting ready for the start of CSL. Let’s go Teda.”

Terry then replied the post: “I miss you old boy.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
