Chelsea captain John Terry will leave Chelsea at the end of the season after joining as a 14-year-old about 22 years ago.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed after Chelsea’s 4-3 win against Watford that he is looking forward to seeing Terry lift the Premier League title and FA Cup.
When asked if Terry should retire at the end of the season, Conte insisted Terry should keep on playing.
“First all I am looking forward to seeing him lift the cup. All the players want to see this,” Conte said.
“It is the right final for John and he took this decision to play regularly and to play every game and he preferred to leave Chelsea and play every game.
“For us it is a big loss, he helped me a lot in this season. He sends the right message to the other players in every moment of the season. It is a pity for me. I have to respect this decision. When you arrive in this moment and your heart, head and body continues to play then it is right.
“(Should he retire) No, absolutely. I think he wants to continue to play. I wish for him and his family the best, Chelsea will always be his home. He is a great man and a great player for Chelsea and the future it will be sad.”
