It’s the end of an era as we have come to the end of John Terry’s 22-year stay at Chelsea. The 36-year-old has called off his time at Stamford Bridge, but he’d forever be in the hearts of the Chelsea fans.
Terry was asked by the official Chelsea website how many times he has played through the pain while playing for the Blues.
“Numerous times,” he answered. “In the 2015 championship-winning season when I played every minute of every game, you just find a way. I have seen others do it, too. David Luiz and Gary Cahill, for the pair of them before the Champions League final to not play or train for weeks before was incredible.
“I remember in Jose Mourinho’s years he was desperate for me to play or train when I had a broken toe and a broken bone in my foot. I had to have two injections in my toe every day for a whole year, one before training and sometimes the doctor would have to come out and re-inject me because it wore off in training if it was a longer session than an hour. It was just a given for me. I would do it again tomorrow because it sounds crazy but you would give your life for the football club when they have given you so much over the years.”
