Chelsea captain John Terry has failed to start a Premier League game for Chelsea since September and he has confirmed he will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has paid tribute to his former Chelsea teammate John Terry.
Hasselbaink revealed it hurts Terry to sit on the bench because Terry is a competitor who still believes he has something to offer.
“John Terry still wants to play and is a competitor that thinks he still can give a team something and that’s why he is going to go,” Hasselbaink told Premier League Daily.
“It hurts him to sit on the bench because that’s the kind of player he is, the kind of competitor he was.
“I played with him. I must say I was fortunate to play with great captains such as Dennis Wise, Marcel Desailly and Frank Leboeuf but John Terry is right up there.
“He is magnificent. He is a leader, he is a man, he managed the squad as a player really well and it will be a big miss.
“It will be a big miss because they don’t have somebody like John Terry at the club.”
