John Terry, ‘captain, leader, legend’. His 22-year spell at Chelsea which began at the age of 14 has finally come to an end and he has now joined Championship side Aston Villa on a one-year deal.
Terry leaves Chelsea as the greatest player to have played for the club and achieved a lot of record-breaking feats as captain of this great club.
The former Chelsea skipper admitted that he has been talking to fellow ex-Chelsea star Frank Lampard about potentially managing Chelsea in future.
Terry admitted: “I think that is the goal for all of us. Me and Lamps have had those conversations and spoken.
“Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big.
“I have always wanted to be the very best and if that is in management and Chelsea is the one, then in my world that would be incredible.”
Terry admitted that the decision to play for another club wasn’t an easy one, and it took him a while to make up his mind, as he eventually settled for a Championship side despite offers from Premier League teams.
Terry added: “It took me a long time to get my head around playing for another club.
“There were a lot of emotions over the summer. Chelsea has been my club from a boy, I have grown up there.
“I’ve had some great times and won some great trophies like the Champions League, Premier Leagues and FA Cups for the first time in the club’s history.”
