John Terry played his last league game for Chelsea on Sunday, as the Blues defeated Sunderland 5-1 at Stamford Bridge.

It was Terry’s 717th appearance for Chelsea and 580th as captain of the team, and the Chelsea captain, leader and legend was given a befitting farewell.

Speaking after the game, Cahill said: “We wanted to win, we didn’t want to finish with a loss or a draw. It was all about celebrating. Celebrating a great player in John and celebrating the title.

“He’s such a great player and an idol at the football club. He gave me the armband and it’s been a great honour to be captain for a large part of the season, but we all know he’s the club captain. He holds that honour and he has that respect among the fans and players.”

Hazard also paid tribute to Terry, praising his attitude and impact around the club.

“He’s been a fantastic leader and captain,” said Hazard. “He’s given a lot to the young players and it was a huge honour to play with him for five years.”

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.
