The future of Chelsea's captain John Terry winds up faster and it got worse when he sustained a leg injury some months ago. David Luiz return has quickly made the presence of John Terry a thing of the past.
The 36 year old captain who has been playing for the team since he was a teenager, the only long serving academy player in the team. He was about calling it up last season and switch to the MLS, but Antonio Conte persuaded him to stay in other to maximize his leadership quality and experience to the team. In turn John Terry was offered a year contract to keep him at the Bridge for yet another season.
SkySport Pundit Gary Neville has told Metro.co.uk this week saying; ‘At Terry’s age he can relax about not being in the team. He’s climbed the mountain of football really with what he’s done. He can now provide good support to that team.’
Chelsea have gone five games winning without conceding a goal with John Terry's absence.
