Since John Terry announced that he’d be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, the tributes have been pouring in for the Chelsea captain.

The 36-year-old has been an influential figure for Chelsea in well over a decade and chose to call it quits after a 22-year spell.

Another Blues legend Didier Drogba has sent his former teammate a heartfelt tribute.

He wrote on Instagram: “From day one you’ve been a true Leader, when I first met you and didn’t know who you were πŸ™ˆ ☺ but said to me “welcome to chelsea” Thought you were a young player from the academy going on pre season tour πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Then I realized who you were from your first speech right before our first friendly game vs @celticfc . You’ve been carrying this team, this club for 22 years with the same passion, the same desire to win for @chelseafc and our fans. Proud to have been lead by the all time best defender of @premierleague and one of the very best in the world!!!! Thanks for the memories CAPTAIN LEGEND TERRY @johnterry.26 and all the very best for your next challenge. #leaderonandoffthepitch #legend #Goat #chelseafc #johnterry #blues #endofanera #whataneraitwas #winniiiiiiiiiingπŸ…πŸ†πŸ…πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ…πŸ†πŸ…πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ…πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†”

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.
