John Terry’s time at Chelsea might be up at the end of the season. His contract runs out at the end of the season, and it doesn’t seem there will be an extension. The Chelsea captain has been at Stamford Bridge since he was 14, and has had a great career in his over two-decade stay at the club, and is even regarded as one of the greatest to have played for the club.

Former Chelsea defender Paul Elliot believes that the Chelsea legend deserves a new contract.

He said: “Of course [he should get a new contract]. His impact on the club. Impact on the dressing room. Impact on the dugout. He’s the manager’s confidant. He is a great ambassador for the club, I don’t have to sell it to get him a contract, his characteristics speak for themselves.

“JT is a team player. Of course, he wants to play but the thing with JT is that part of being a leader is accepting the team comes first and the players come first.

“The club comes first and that part his acceptance and of his great characteristics of being a leader that what’s happening and nobody more than him wants the team to keep winning.

“Of course, he wants to play. The professional inside him wants to play but he is mature enough and sensible enough to do the right thing for Chelsea and that will continue.”

Elliott spent three years at Chelsea before suffering a career-ending injury in a game against Liverpool in 1994.
