Chelsea legend John Terry is back at Chelsea, not to continue his playing career with the Blues but only to use the club’s facilities in a bid to speed up his recovery from a broken metatarsal.

The man who got the title ‘captain, leader, legend’ was at the club for 22 years before he departed at the end of last season – picking up his fifth Premier League title winner’s medal in the process – and joined Championship outfit Aston Villa on a free transfer during the summer.

The Chelsea legend was signed by Steve Bruce in a bid to help Villa’s attempts to gain promotion back to the top flight of English football.

Terry limped off after 20 minutes of the 2-1 home defeat by Sheffield Wednesday last month due to injury and has decided to return to the club to help his recovery.

He took to Instagram to post a picture of himself at his former club’s Cobham training base and was also in a Chelsea training kit alongside David Luiz who is himself nursing an injury which has kept him out of action since the 4-0 win over Qarabag in the Champions League last month.

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.
