The future of Chelsea defender John Terry was under a lot of speculation at the end of last season. He was looking towards the exit door after the Blues refused to offer him a contract extension.

It wasn’t until Antonio Conte came in as boss that he was offered another year to stay with the club, which Terry welcomed with open arms.

During his first press conference, Conte told reporters of his excitement to have Terry in the team because he knows so much about the club. He also insisted that the former England international will remain as the club captain.

“Yes, John Terry is the captain of Chelsea… when he plays, when he doesn’t play. John Terry signed a contract as a player. He is a captain of this team, a great player with a great personality. 

“I like to speak with him because he knows the club, the right spirit to play in this club and for me, he’s an important player for me, for the club, for the fans. He signed in May but the decision was taken together, with the club. 

“Of course I am very pleased John Tery has signed a new contract with Chelsea. I have spoken with him at different times. It is important for that John, when he signed, was very, very happy.”
