Also Frank Lampard sent a message to his friend and ex team-mate John Terry, who might leave Chelsea at the end of this season.

The Blues all time top scorer said he was sorry not to present tonight, but he was stuck in the USA for duties with his new team New York City FC:

“John Terry is the greatest Premier League defender, beyond a doubt,” Lampard started.

“Thank you John for being able to play alongside you. We as Chelsea people want him to stay involved with the club.

“Thank you Chelsea fans for continuing to support the club and me. The club will be back and challenging again very soon,” he concluded.

A very emotional tribute was paid to Chelsea legend John Terry at tonight Player of the Year award ceremony.

A video showing messages from Didier Drogba, Gianfranco Zola, Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli was showed.

Drogba said: “My first memory of John Terry was my first day at Chelsea. He welcomed me, I didn’t know at the time he was captain.”

“He was so young. I thought, who is this guy? He’s a beast! From that day I have seen that John Terry is a great leader.”

Vialli added: “John, I hope you don’t forget who gave you your debut. Unfortunately I couldn’t make you a regular, I was sacked…”

John Terry couldn’t hold back tears after this and when he was called on stage he was too emotional to step up there, while the whole room was chanting “JOHN TERRY! JOHN TERRY!”.

It’s news from today that Chelsea offered his captain a new deal, but the Blues skipper later revealed with a post on his Instagram account that the role they offered to him is different and he needs time to think about it.

“Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes,” he started.

“The contract extension the club has offered me is a different role.

“I hope everyone will understand I want to take the time to consider it carefully before making a decision.”

NEW SQUAD – “It’s up to the new management to do changes, yes or no”

JOHN TERRY- “Of course I spoke to the club about John’s situation, players and ex players are having a lot of influence in the culture of the club, I’m in favor of that, it’g good to have players in the club with big personality.

“I don’t if we can know more before this weekend match, but usually when things are clear, then they come out, the club will do it official as soon as it’s clear

“He’s been already 20-21 years in this club, it’s a huge period, you must cherish those legends for the future as well.”

DIEGO COSTA/ COURTOIS injured – “He will be out, hamstring, Courtois – that was ill for Anfield game- was again on the pitch, he was training, and I think he will be ok for the weekend

QUIQUE SANCHEZ FLORES – I was a little surprised [he was sacked by Watford] I worked a lot with him in Valencia and Madrid, when he was my player he was 23-24, he’s a good guy, a good professional, I don’t know why they took this decision

FRANK DE BOER – “I have known Frank for many years, he was my player in the national team at France 98, in the world cup in France, I like the job Philip Cocu did in PSV, they are champions, they started with youngsters, Cocu is similar to him, and I think they both have the ambition to step up to La Liga or Premier League

EURO 2016 – “A favourite? I don’t usually do predictions, but I might be a supporter of Belgium team now, I have also some English guys, so it’s difficult to pick, but I think Belgium might be a very good favorite.2

DIEGO COSTA INJURED/ EURO – “I think he can be available, he will have a good rest, but with a good traiming he can make it, I am not sure.

HIS FAREWELL ON SUNDAY – “It’s not a definitive farewell, but I will be back- as I said many times before- to help the club and advince them in the development of young players, so it’s not so dramatic.

HIS SECOND SPELL AT CHELSEA – “When they asked me, to be honest, I don’t know if say YES or NO, then I was very pleased to do it, and I am pleased of what I have done. The escape from relegation zone was good, I would have loved to go into the FA cup final, I would have loved to go at least two more rounds on in the UCL.”

DISAPPOINTING SEASON – “We must face the fact that for Chelsea standards this has been a season with disappointment, but we have to go on and be competitive in the next season.

“We were happy with the reaction when we were close to the relegation zone, then when we were mid table we had to set new targets, the Chelsea standard we put to it’s not achieved and we have to be critical of that.”

LEICESTER – “They were reacting very well, they didn’t implode, they could cope with the pressure and they deserved.”

NEXT PL SEASON – “There can be surprises, they can sign good players, there are no more 4-5 teams that compete every year for the title, and I think is good for football.”

YOUNGSTERS’ DEBUT – “Youngsters must deserve the debut, it’s a huge step from the academy to the first team, they have to make a step, like Traore did in the last months, he’s got a great mentality, he’s not afraid to come in, the other ones have to make the step as well

ChelseaNews24 asked to Hiddink which YOUNGSTERS he would advice to keep to develop with the FIRST TEAM and which ones to go on LOAN, he replied to us:

“I guess to make names is not fair because then you put pressure on them, but I guess that at the beginning of the season the new staff will select many of them to do the pre-season, and there you can see after a couople of weeks who deserves to stay and who have to go.

ACADEMY PLAYERS – When academy players train with the first team, then they start to knock on the door, they must the experience to train as much as possible with the first team, and then it’s natural

MIKEL DEFENDER – “Once we were out of the relegation zone we had to deal with injuries in the defense, so we had to reshuffle Mikel had a good half season, so he had to play as a defender, he wasn’t in favorite position, but he showed he could that as well.”

INJURIES – Ivanovic was on the pitch, but not fully fit, we have to see tomorrow

A club spokesman said right before Hiddink‘s press conference started that John Terry was offered one more year of contract by Chelsea.

Marina Granovskaia and Bruce Buck met with John Terry this week and they offered a one year extension, it’s a big decision for him and his family, and he’s thinking about that,” it was officially reported.

Chelsea could have made an incredible u-turn regarding John Terry‘s future and the Blues captain would possibly stay another year at Stamford Bridge if what The Sun reveals is true.

According to the British paper the organisers of the club’s end of season awards gala had included a section paying tribute to the 35-year-old “captain, leader, legend”.

But Chelsea officials contacted coordinators on Wednesday to tell them to take that planned section out of the running order.

It is understood that next boss Antonio Conte wants to keep Terry, since his experience and knowledge of the club could help him in his delicate job in the upcoming season.

Terry received offers from China and USA, but he stated last Monday that he would love to play two years more at Chelsea.

“I like him very much but he will know what’s best for his future and whatever he decides I’ll be happy for him”.

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has admitted it’s not easy to say how John Terry’s contract situation is going to end, despite he “hopes for the best”.

Speaking after yesterday’s defeat against Liverpool, the Dutchman spoke about Chelsea captain: “Let’s wait to see what happens in the upcoming days on this issue,”

“Of course John Terry is in contact every day with us and he has made such a long career at Chelsea that the fans appreciate him highly. We will see regarding his near future, let’s wait a bit.”

The fans of Chelsea football club are plotting a walk-out during their last 2 games of the Premier League season in protest to the non-renewal of captain John Terry‘s contract.

Terry‘s Chelsea career came to the worst possible ending after seeing the red card in stoppage time in the game with Sunderland at the weekend. Therefore, Terry will miss his own farewell party if Chelsea insist on letting the Blues legend leave.

The Chelsea supporters are hoping that the protest will hit home to the directors of the club showing them how much the fans think of the former England international and how much they believe he deserves a contract extension.
