John Terry

John Terry left Chelsea after more than twenty years at the club last summer but the former Blues captain also left great memories and feelings among his team-mates.

One of these is Cesc Fabregas, who shared the dressing room with him “only” for three seasons, winning two Premier League titles.

The Spanish midfielder sent a gift to Terry, a Chelsea shirt of his, with a special message, and the former Blues captain shared it on his Instagram story:

‘Thank you for everything.  It’s been a pleasure and honour to play with you my friend.

‘My only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner. You are a legend! Love you mate!’

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill speaks about Alvaro Morata saying he is not feeling the pressure and he demonstrates it by scoring a lot of goals in the Premier League.

“It’s great that, after Diego, we have another striker coming in and scoring straight away”. – Cahill said – I’m sure Alvaro wasn’t surprised by the pressure. He knew that it would be there when he joined and he came from a huge club anyway. Being a striker for Chelsea comes with a lot of pressure, but he has played with big players and big teams. He knows how to handle that and I don’t think it has been an issue at all. The easiest thing I found when I joined was that I knew a few people beforehand. It was early doors but I was in there with Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry. A few familiar faces helps and there are obviously a few Spaniards that Morata knows here. He is a fantastic guy, down to earth. His personality makes it very easy to get on with him. You can see from his performances that he is enjoying life at Chelsea.”

“Good Luck Diego Costa in your next journey my friend, – he posted on Instagram – An unbelievable player and one of the nicest and funniest guys I have met in football, playing against him in training and games was an absolute nightmare, one of the best and underrated players I have played with and against”.

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”.

Gary Cahill is ready to begin the season as the new Chelsea captain.

“I feel I’m at an age where I can pass on my experience to the younger players,” – Cahill told reporters today – “We have a lot of experienced players in the dressing room anyway, but I certainly feel I can help.”

Gary Cahill, moreover, recognises, that Blues legend John Terry will be truly missed in the Chelsea’s dressing room: “Obviously – the defender continues – John Terry will be huge loss for us”.

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.”
