Gary Cahill has been officialy named new Chelsea captain by manager Antonio Conte.

Cahill already wore the armband many times last season and now, with Blues legend John Terry playing for Aston Villa, he has been awarded with the “job” permanently.

“I think that it’s right to continue with Cahill, if he plays, it’s right he’s the captain,” Conte said according to the Evening Standard – “Why? Because he stayed in Chelsea for many years and played a lot of games and showed good characteristics to be this.”

However, Gary Cahill will not be the only leader in Chelsea’s dressing room and on the pitch:  “I think also we can have other captains in our team, it could be Azpilicueta, David Luiz, and also, in the future, it could be Thibaut Courtois, Cesc Fabregas,” Conte continued – ” “I think every single player must improve in this [being big personalities in the dressing room] and understand [they have] to take more responsibility because we lost big players and we need now to find these new players to create this fundamental for Chelsea. It is very important for our future success to create this base”.

Blues legend and captain John Terry officialy joined Aston Villa yesterday after more than 20 years at Stamford Bridge.

Terry now believes Gary Cahill is his best successor to become Chelsea captain, after wearing the armband on many occasions last season.

“Gary has been brilliant as captain for Chelsea but the manager will decide,” – Terry told the Evening Standard – “However, it’s not just on the field that he has led the field brilliantly, but inside the dressing room as well. No one really gets to see that. He has been a man-mountain at times. The way in which he was speaking at half-time during some of the games, like in the FA Cup final against Arsenal, where he was leading the group, showed what a big character he is. If he gets the armband, he will fit it well.”

Chelsea legend John Terry left the Blues after 22 years among youth teams and first team: yesterday his signing for Aston Villa was announced, with the former Blues skipper admitting he didn’t want to join a Premier League side to not face Chelsea.

Now, Terry admits he would love to return at Stamford Bridge as a manager:

That’s a goal. Me and Lamps [Frank Lampard] have had those conversations. Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big. I’ve always wanted to be the very best and if that’s in management then Chelsea’s the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can’t go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job.

“You need to go and learn, whether that’s in the academy like Stevie [Gerrard] is doing. It’s difficult to get jobs. I see a lot of players from my generation not walking into jobs that maybe I thought they would get. So I think you need to go out and do your work and put your minutes in on the pitch and make your mistakes that no one sees so that when you do go in, you’re kind of ready.”

After officialy joining Aston Villa, Blues legend John Terry revealed one of the reasons why he signed for the Birmingham club and he decided to play in Championship next season.

And this reason, of course, is Chelsea: “It was the mental side of playing against Chelsea that was too much for me.” – Terry revealed – “The ideal situation is to get into the Premier League, that’s why I’m here and I believe we have the squad of players to do so. If they’re back in the Premier League this time next year I’ve done my job, and we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”

John Terry told the club’s official website he’s “delighted to join Aston Villa”.

“It’s a club I have admired from afar for many years – he added – there are fantastic facilities at Bodymoor Heath, Villa Park is one of the finest stadiums in the country and there’s a good group of players here, with an experienced and successful manager in Steve Bruce.

“I can’t wait to get started now and look to help the squad achieve something special this season.”
