Chelsea skipper John Terry has given the fans a very heartening boost by declaring that he intends to play for the London club for the rest of his life.
The 28-year old England international rose through the youth ranks at Chelsea and has come of age to become the captain of one of the European football’s heavyweights (in recent years at least!). He is now considered an icon at Stamford Bridge and his declaration that he shall continue to play for the Blues until the end of his playing career must certainly come as a great news both to the club as well as to the fans.
Terry has been quoted as saying by Chelsea’s official website:
“Hopefully I’ve got another 10 years in me – certainly for Chelsea. I’m going to give everything for the club. I’ve felt a lot of disappointment before, but I owe the Chelsea fans for what they have given me – for making me feel welcome as a youngster even though I wasn’t ready. I owe my career to the Chelsea fans so I want to thank every one of them personally. I’ve got my testimonial in a few years and hopefully that will be a big game and a good day for the supporters as well.”
John Terry would almost certainly go down in Chelsea’s history as a club legend. And given that he has declared that he shall remain loyal to the club, it appears that he shall remain as one of the few one-club men in world football.
Salute you John Terry!
