John Terry: “I couldn’t play for another Premier League club”

After announcing that he will leave the club at the end of the season and will not be offered a new contract, John Terry spoke of his thoughts on the news. He said “Ideally I would have loved to stay, but the club’s moving in a different direction.”

Having played vast majority of his professional career at Chelsea he was asked about whether he will move to any other English club and he said “No. I couldn’t do that to the Chelsea fans. I couldn’t play for another Premier League club. It will be elsewhere for sure. I don’t know where, and I leave that to the people in charge, but it certainly won’t be in the Premier League.

“My agent made the call like we do every January. He got told over the phone so I called to set up a meeting the following day. The club immediately set that up, which was great of them to do that. I wanted to hear it face to face. They told me. Unfortunately it’s not going to be.

“I feel as though I’m in great nick, I’m playing great and I’ve got a couple of years to go.”
