Former Chelsea Captain John Terry Announces Retirement From Football

Former Chelsea and England captain John Terry has announced his retirement.

Terry, who joined Chelsea aged 14, led the Blues to five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, the Champions League, Europa League and three League Cups.

He was the club’s most successful captain.

Terry, 37, took to Instagram on Sunday evening to thank fans in an emotional farewell post.

“After 23 incredible years as a footballer, I have decided now is the right time to retire from playing,” his statement read.

“As a 14-year-old, I made the biggest and best decision: to sign for Chelsea. Words will never be enough to show how much everyone at the club means to me, in particular the fans.

“To me, you are the best fans in the world. I hope I have done you all proud wearing the shirt and the armband.

“I want to thank my amazing team-mates, coaches, managers and backroom staff, who I was honoured to work with and learn from.

“They all guided me on my way to playing 717 games for the club I love, and it was a privilege to serve them as captain.

“I look forward to the next chapter in my life and the challenges in my head.”
