John Terry will continue playing with Chelsea at least until summer 2016: he has signed a new contract just minutes ago, the Chelsea official website reports.
These are the integral words of Chelsea:
Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce that John Terry has signed a new contract, extending his stay until the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
Since his debut in 1998, the club captain has made 661 appearances, scoring a club record 63 goals for a defender. His man-of-the-match display in the Capital One Cup final on 1 March brought his 13th major honour with the Blues, a third League Cup win added to the Champions League, Europa League and three Premier League titles, with Terry also boasting five FA Cup winner’s medals.
Terry’s first conference, exclusively with the Chelsea FC website: “I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea.”
“After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.”
“Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
Jose Mourinho also released a comment on the deal: “This new contract is not to say “thank you very much”; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.”
