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.

Guus Hiddink press conference ahead of Liverpool away game in Premier League:

TERRY – “He’s been training the recent days, of course when you come on the pitch after being sent off it’s not the best face, not being in the last game, in the last two games is a blow for him

“When I make a judgement on his playing, I say he’s able to play, to continue.

“The season was not a great season, it’s always good to have the key players playing, I think with Leicester it should be a party game, not just for them but also to say goodbye to this season.”

FUTURE SQUAD – “I am not going to give judgement about the players, they [next technical staff] are clever enough to be able to make their own judgement.”

NO EUROPE – “To not be in Europe for next season of course is a disaster, a football disaster, because Chelsea must be always in the top, so regarding that, yes, Chelsea should be there.”

MISSED TARGETS – “My first job was to get them out of the relegation zone asap, because you never know what can happen in the English league. There was this negative scenario, we did it fast, our other target were to go to FA cup finals and to progress in the Champions League, but this was not possible.

LIVERPOOL – “Everyone wants to be at the top next season, they have a very good skillful team, it’s nice to see them, they are an energetic team, with huge history.”

HIS FUTURE – “I’m going to France to watch the EURO and do some TV work, of course I will be on to help clubs or players, but not in the spotlight, this week we had a meeting with a company that advice young players, to develop, and I am an adviser for them, I like this very much.”

TERRY/FANS – “I don’t know the state of mind of the fans, once you have clear ideas of your future, then you can be transparent.

“That is the strategy of the club [to not claim officially if a contract will be extended before the end of the season] of course John[Terry] has been here for 18 years and he deserves a huge goodbye, that is never a goodbye, because whatever happens being away, usually they come back to help the club, but this is just my personal opinion, they can be very useful.”

TERRY FUTURE COACH – “I think the other day we were seating next to each other before the game in Bournemouth, and he felt good, many of my past players in that period on their career asked themselves what do to next, he’s always been a leader, he can make this step and he has to start to make a foundation to be a manager. You can use your experience to become a manager.”

John Terry might have played his last game for Chelsea after he was sent off against Sunderland last Saturday. However, Blues captain Terry is ready to agree a £12m per year deal in the Chinese Super League, according to The Sun.

Former Chelsea manager Phil Scolari (now at Guangzhou Evergrande) and former Sven-Goran Eriksson (currently at Shanghai) are reportedly interested in Terry and are eyeing him far-back according to the sources.

Also former Chelsea man Dan Petrescu, currently manager at Jiangsu Suning, is likely to be interested in his signature this summer.

With a transfer move to Chinese Super League John Terry would also be joining Demba Ba, Ramires and Didier Drogba.

“I still want to play for a couple more years, hopefully that’s at Chelsea.

“I’m a Chelsea player and that has been my club since the age of 14. I love Chelsea,” these are the words that every Blues fan want to hear from their captain, John Terry, that is still far to find an agreement with the club to extend his contract, expiring in the end of this season.

In this moment the Chelsea skipper is set to leave next summer, but this words of love for the club pronounced while speaking to Brondby TV today give hopes to all the fans that want him to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Terry was in Denmark on Monday to watch Brondby IF, the club owned by close friend Jan Bech Andersen, and after the game he spoke to the club’s TV station.

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic spoke about John Terry’s second yellow card at Stadium of Light: “Of course, he is not happy we lost.” he said after the 3-2 away defeat.

“But we know what he has done for this club and what he has won. All of us in the team wish him all the best for the future and of course this is not a good way to finish in a club but we don’t forget what he won and what he has already done.”

John Terry will probably suffer the consequences with a two-match suspension and then he may have played his final game for Blues against Sunderland.

Jose Mourinho former assistant manager Steve Clarke believes that Chelsea and Antonio Conte are making a mistake not extending John Terry‘s contract for the next season:

“I’m surprised and I have been quite vocal in my support of John Terry staying at Chelsea next season,” Clarke told Sky Sports News HQ.

“John has been there so long. He understands the club and knows it inside out. He understands the passion of the supporters and it is just my personal opinion, but I think he would be a big help for the incoming manager.

“It’s Conte‘s first season in the Premier League and he would have John’s experience to call on when needed. He’d have John’s ear, if you like.

“John is the club captain and a big personality in the dressing room and it just seems a little strange that they are going to let him go. It’s not as though he is over the hill. You look at his performances this season when he’s been fit, the team have done well so I think he has another season in him.”

Clarke also underlined how Chelsea will struggle in next transfer window, being the club out of European competitions for the next campaign:

“The elite players, the top, top players around the world want to play Champions League football so Chelsea will struggle to attract that type of player to the club,” Clarke said.

Finally, he claimed that Conte is the right choice in this moment for the club:

“But I think Antonio Conte is a good appointment. His track record is good. People I have spoken to tell me he is quite intense, not too dissimilar to Jose Mourinho in that aspect.

“He’s very demanding of his players and I think Chelsea have shown this season that they are a squad of players that need a manager who demands a lot of them and pushes them.”

Chelsea captain John Terry is set to leave the club at the end of this season after he joined it as a kid and became a legend, as well as the leader of the team for many years.

The Blues directors are not keen to extend his contract and the skipper, now 35, wants to hire Stamford Bridge for a big leaving party next week and boss Guus Hiddink hopes to get an invitation:

“I hope I will be invited,” said the interim manager.

“I don’t know. You have to ask him.”

The match with current Premier League champions, Leicester City, that will end this campaign on 15 May could be the last one for Terry with the Chelsea shirt and all the tickets are already sold out.

“What a game that was last night. Great character from the players to come back from 2-0 down,” Terry wrote.

“The atmosphere was incredible and we know how much that result means to you supporters. 27 years #notonmyshift

“Well done @garyjcahill and @hazardeden_10 on two superb finishes.

“Congratulations Leicester City and all their players, Claudio Ranieri who fully deserve the league title this year.”
